Abu Dhabi MAR Group acquires Germany's HDW yard

Abu Dhabi MAR Group acquires Germany's HDW yard

Today, September 1st 2011, saw the contracts for the acquisition of the former HDW yard in Kiel now come into force.

Renamed Abu Dhabi MAR Kiel, the company starts with 172 employees, the facilities, equipment and infrastructure of the former HDW yard, working on the first orders of its target markets: superyachts and the construction of special vessels.

Managing Directors of this new company are Ms Susanne Wiegand and Mr Holger Kahl. The operations manager is Mr Christian Schmitt, who already held a leading position at HDW’s surface vessel division for several years. Abu Dhabi MAR Kiel is currently building a 75m motor yacht and an offshore transformer platform.

In order to ensure a long-term and optimal utilisation of the facility in Kiel and a competitive cost structure, a close cooperation with Nobiskrug GmbH in Rendsburg providing major services has been established.
