Largest single section left Ostseestaal shipyard

28 m long, 9 m wide and 4 m high, the superstructure section is destined for a Dutch megayacht [ds_preview].

This week, the aluminum component left the site of the former Volkswerft shipyard. The 13.5-ton shell of the deck superstructure was loaded on board the multi-purpose vessel “Maureen S”. The ship section destined for a Dutch shipyard is reportedly the largest single component to leave the halls at Ostseestaal in Stralsund to date.

“With the production of the deckhouse for this megayacht, Ostseestaal is once again demonstrating its expertise in the manufacture of special constructions for international shipbuilding,” says Michael Schultze, Business Unit Manager at Ostseestaal. “Welding aluminum and other high-quality materials in particular requires very special know-how and many years of experience.” Ostseestaal traditionally supplies the shipyard industry with three-dimensional cold-formed steel sheets. According to the shipyard, Ostseestaal has “long been the technology leader” in 3D cold forming. The process makes it possible to fulfill very individual and special customer requirements. With the growing trend towards the construction of special ships in international shipbuilding, Ostseestaal has “been able to further consolidate its leading position in this market”, it says.

The Stralsund-based specialist company is also a shipbuilder itself. To date, twelve electric solar ships have been built for various applications in professional inland shipping. Three new electric solar ferries are currently in production. Thanks to the high diversity of its product range, Ostseestaal says it is also continuously securing orders from suppliers to the aircraft industry, the wind energy sector and the tank industry, as well as for architectural projects. Since 2021, the company has also been planning and manufacturing outer skin flaps for megayachts.
