Lürssen Announces €13 Million Blohm+Voss Investment Plans

31 January 2020 • Written by Miranda Blazeby

Lürssen has announced improvement plans for the Blohm+Voss yard, which will include transforming Dock 10 into a covered dock at a cost of €13 million.

Construction on the new structure is due to begin later this year after designs were presented to city representatives, the shipyard and architect's office earlier this month. The dock is due to complete construction in 2022.

The yard has released renderings of the completed construction shed

Designed by German architect Werner Sobek, the new structure will be integrated into Hamburg harbour and will enable the yard to better carry out confidential projects and protect yachts against bad weather.

Chairman of the supervisory board for Blohm + Voss, Klaus Borgschulte, said: “The renovation enables us to significantly expand the range of repairs and refit services for existing and potential customers of yachts, naval and cruise ships."

He added: "We will significantly improve the working conditions for our employees and make ourselves less dependent on the weather. Thanks to the new roof, we will be able to also significantly reduce noise emissions and energy consumption.”

Construction on the new dock will begin later this year

It comes after Lürssen acquired the shipyard in 2016 in one of the biggest superyacht mergers in history.

The German yard revealed that, following the conversion of the dock, it will have invested a total of over €33 million in the new facility.
