SGdP has a long tradition in the repair and conversion of all types of ship. Thanks to its position in the Port of Genoa and its proximity to a major Mediterranean cruise terminal, over the years the company has focused mainly on the passenger shipping sector (cruise liners and ferries), completing many major projects and gaining extensive experience in the area.
Over the past 30 years, the shipyard has expanded into every segment of the market, ranging from commercial vessels, such as cargo ships, tankers and LNG/LPG carriers to military vessels and large offshore units.
Against the backdrop of an ever-changing market and shipowner tendency to build increasingly large vessels, the shipyard made the decision to take over larger facilities in France – Chantier Naval de Marseille (CNdM).
The proximity of the shipyards to two of the largest cruise terminals in the Mediterranean, combined with extensive experience acquired over the last century, as well as their complementary facilities (Dry Dock No. 10 in Marseille is 465m long and 85m wide), allows SGdP and CNdM to undertake every type of project and manage even the most complex projects on any type of vessel, whether it concerns super-sized containers and offshore platforms or large LNG and passenger ships.
SGdP aims to boost its share in this specialised market where their strengths (reliability, timely deliveries, expert project management) meet the exacting needs and priorities of the LNG business, with the aim of providing excellent service. The shipyard has the required certifications and trained staff who are able to operate on these specific vessels. The workforce and the engineering staff have extensive experience of LNG repair projects and are qualified by GTT to manage LNG membrane repair.
Through carefully selected qualified service providers and an extensive network of subcontractors, SGdP offers a full range of specialised activities, including membrane tank testing, cryogenic piping, and valve and pump overhauls. The shipyards maintain a strong relationship with European repair experts and suppliers of materials for LNG containment systems.
