Szczecin Shipyard, one of the conference sponsors, continues the 70-year tradition of ship production in post-war Szczecin and even longer achievements of the pre-war shipbuilding sector. Szczecin Shipyard has 45 hectares of production areas located in the north-eastern part of Szczecin. It currently has the character of a compact shipyard which has grouped specialized production centers that implement the entire technological process of shipbuilding.
The shipyard’s infrastructure consists of objects characteristic to the shipbuilding industry, including ramps, quays, workshops with cranes and lifting devices, warehouses and prefabrication and storage spaces. The staff of Szczecin Shipyard coordinates the cooperation of over 65 entities operating in its area employing a total of 2,300 people.
Andrzej Strzeboński, President of the Management Board at the Szczecin Shipyard, offered the following comment:
“Szczecin Shipyard is the industrial heart of the city. There is no competition in Europe in terms of crane potential, which are able to carry sections with a total weight of 4600 tons. Blasting and painting chambers are also a unique facility in Europe, covering an area of a hectare under the roof. The yard has six prefabrication halls with a total area of 10,000 m², which allows the preparation of 230-ton sections in stable conditions. The shipyard achieves and continuously improves its high-level implementation capabilities by conducting a comprehensive and advanced modernization program - in the last two years, the value of infrastructure investments of the company amounted to nearly PLN 20 million. New contracts already implemented at the Shipyard are an auspicious sign for the entire Szczecin economy”.
