Denmark back as a shipyard nation

A huge amount of ships were built at shipyards around the Baltic Sea region some 20-30 years ago. With the closure of B&W in Copenhagen, many observers thought the shipping industry was about to disappear entirely. But today there is once again belief in a future for Denmark as a shipbuilding nation.

Around USD 18.6 million. That was the revenue the wrecked and partially burned container ship MSC Flaminia helped generate at the quays by Fayard when the ship, over the turn of the year 2013/2014, was drained of approx. 30,000 tons of toxic water and cargo.

The job was performed by NORD (formerly Kommunekemi), ISS, HJ Hansen, and not least the repair and maintenance yard Fayard, which – among other things – ensured that the ship could be placed in a dry dock during the cleaning process, a job that employed as many as 400 men. This was a new type of job for Fayard, as the yard primarily deals with repairs and ship checkups at the old Lindoe yard in Munkebo, Denmark.
