Ship Building

Besiktas Group has concentrated on building high value ships since 2001 and has cooperated with Swedish tanker owners to design Ice Class 1A tankers.

Before establishing Besiktas Shipyard, Besiktas Group had built 21 tankers. As project manager and builder of these vessels we coordinated all aspects of shipbuilding by providing the design, equipment, workmanship and full contract responsibilities via using third party facilities. Most of these high value and sophisticated vessels were handed over to owners and operators worldwide such as Unitankers Denmark, Veritas Rederi Sweden, Sirius Rederi Sweden, Vaderotank Sweden, Groupe Desgagnes Canada, Petromarine France, Socatra France, Prime Commercial Management Sweden, Unifleet Netherlands. Having provided these services to the first class clients and having the full awareness of the industry standards enabled Besiktas Shipyard get established on a solid ground and a firm reference list.

The current facility where the Besiktas Shipyard is placed, has a ship building capacity of 7 ships per annum up to 30,000 dwt.

After having built the first 4 tankers of 4100 dwt to Besiktas fleet, Besiktas Shipyard mainly has concentrated to special purpose vessels with tailor made solutions in order to diversify the ship building portfolio and act in line with the general strategy to supply value added ships to its clients.

We are building vessels to operate at tropic waters to polar conditions, heavy winterized and ice breaking capabilities as needed also incorporating alternate, dual, hybrid, diesel electric and dual fuel propulsion.
