Order for Container Ship Placed with Blohm + Voss GmbH
In November, the Hamburg yard Blohm + Voss GmbH, a company of ThyssenKrupp Werften, obtained an order for the construction of a container ship with a capacity of 2700 TEU. The order was placed by GEBAB (Gesellschaft für Konzeption und Betreuung privater Investitionen mbH, Meerbusch).
In cooperation with the sister yard Nordseewerke GmbH (NSWE) in Emden, which also forms part of ThyssenKrupp Werften, and based on the existing design of NSWE, the ship will be built on the slipway of Blohm + Voss. The delivery is scheduled for May 2005.
Workshop production will start already in mid-January 2004. With this order, Blohm + Voss GmbH improves the employment situation and part of the production workforce will be able to stop working short time.
An application has been made for subsidies from the Federal Republic of Germany and the City of Hamburg. In addition to this, the workforce of Blohm + Voss will also make a contribution.
