Hvide Sande Shipyard has been in the shipbuilding industry for many years. The industry has changed from focusing on fishing vessels to a wider range of activities. We have tackled the challenges and changes head-on, and by being innovative and flexible we have managed to do well in a tough industry.
Throughout the years our field has moved towards greater specialization, and the demand for customized and intelligent solutions and green technologies has increased.
Our company has evolved to meet such demands, and we now supply a wide range of services all the way from maintenance of heritage vessels to full electric new builds. We are prepared to meet the challenges of the future and to continue delivering excellent solutions.
