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 offers unrivalled services to the commercial maritime sector including maintenance, repairs, refits/upgrades and conversions for a wide variety of commercial vessels (tankers, cargo, Ro-Ro and container ships). Standard dry-dock refits and also complex refits are undertaken on a regular basis.
The shipyards have the skills and facilities to deal with any requirement including: steel repairs, steel renewals and steel manufacture; installation or replacement of new cargo handling equipment; main and auxiliary engine strip down and overhaul; repair and renewal of steering gear, deck, shafting and propulsion machinery; blasting, coating and surface treatment; and offshore equipment installations.
