Monika Kozakiewicz, president of the management board of Stocznia Remontowa Nauta: In almost 97 years of operation, we have gone through two key stages. The first is the period of activity at Washington Street in Gdynia, where the limited territorial space hindered development.
The second stage is after moving to the area of the former Gdynia Shipyard, where Nauta Shipyard gained access to a larger area and access to the SD-I dry dock, which contributed to increasing our production capacity. This move allowed the Shipyard to implement much larger repair projects, currently we have the ability to carry out dock repairs on kamsarmax ships. In addition, changes in the business model resulted in the separation of subsidiaries and the reorganization of the production process.
Currently, the Shipyard employs about 300 of its own employees, and its subsidiaries another 300 people. In addition, about 1.5 thousand people from external companies work in the shipyard in the implementation of our projects, which makes us a large player on the labor market of the entire region.
Last year we recorded exceptional achievements, which makes it a record year for our shipyard. Operating revenues amounted to an impressive PLN 319 million. In 2022, we completed over 154 projects.
We mainly carried out class renovations and BWTS system installations.
Our main sales markets are Germany, Norway and Poland. This year, we also observe very good results, despite the implementation of class repairs in the two of our floating docks. We continue the implementation of class repairs and the installation of BWTS systems.
We leased the SD-I dock. We are at the stage of buying it from the current owner, the Industrial Development Agency. We expect the transaction to be finalized in early autumn.
