Fredericia Shipyard moves to Lindø

Today, Fredericia Shipyard has entered into an agreement with Odense Steel Shipyard on renting the original dock facilities at Lindø and a number of buildings housing administration, workshops and changing room facilities etc. Fredericia Shipyard will have more than 100,000 m2 at their disposal.

The agreement runs for a minimum of 25 years. Already this year, Fredericia Shipyard will commence rebuilding to be ready at Lindø on 1 January 2011 with 50% of its repair work. The remainder will move to Lindø the following year.

Shipbuilder Thomas Andersen, Fredericia Shipyard: ”For many years, we have worked with Lindø on projects and ship repairs for A.P. Moller – Maersk. At Lindø we will have desirable space and working conditions so we can continue the development from the position we have attained at Fredericia. Behind the results at Fredericia are 450 employees. To get them to move to Lindø is important, if the transformation is to be a total success. The central location of Lindø both in relation to employees and customers played a part in the decision making process. We do not plan to halt production during the move from Fredericia to Lindø.”
