Employees and expertise
We have 37 own employees. But we use from 5-50 hired and subcontractors from the local community for larger projects.
We have our own engineers, mechanics, plate workers, welders, ship plumbers, carpenters, surface finishers etc.
The shipyard is built around a dock of the type "Syncrolift". The lifting capacity is 1000 tons. It can handle vessels up to 75 meters.
We have two beds for erecting docked boats on land.
We also have two ship halls:
The largest is 65 meters long and 25 meters below the crane hooks.
We also have around 200 meters of quay length for quay based operations.
We at Solund Verft specialize in several fields within the shipyard trade.
We place a strong emphasis on the shipyard industry and therefore, we are a strong competitor to both domestic and foreign operators.
Inland, virtually all shipyards apply between Stavanger and Ålesund. Traditionally most with Blaalid Måløy (No Stadyard).
When it comes to foreign competitors, we talk mainly about Denmark and the Baltic countries.
