GERMAN NAVAL YARDS Kiel specialises in the design and construction of highly-integrated naval vessels. These include frigates, corvettes and offshore patrol vessels. Our shipyards in Kiel are the direct successor to the surface vessel shipbuilding sector of HDW (Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH). The historic traditions of naval shipbuilding on the Kiel Fjord live on at our shipyards.

Vessels of all frigate classes currently used by the German Navy have been built from this shipyard.

On Thursday, 6th October 2016 managing director of GERMAN NAVAL YARDS, Holger Kahl, welcomes high-level guests from China on the shipyard in Kiel.
