Although being an “inland company”, we already made ship yards and suppliers fit for the market. With the know-how transfer of production and assembly methods from other branches (spin off), Fahrion has realized a shipyard for freighters, a manufacture facility for ship engines, a plant for ship propellers up to 11m diameter and a plant for crankshafts up to 44t forging weight. For the detailed machinery and the certificated measuring of huge crankshafts, we have developed new machines and patented them world wide.
As a revolutionary innovation, freighters are built in a modular way: Assemblage of rings with a length of 30m each. The result is an extremely economical production in one transfer line. Therefore, the dry dock does no longer need a final assembly hangar, and it is occupied only some months per ship. A Revolution.
