Lisnave in 2016: positive performance
LISNAVE achieved good positive results although 2016
was a difficult year for the shiprepair activity – strongly affected
by the crisis in the maritime transportation sector, which suffered a
sharp reduction in freight rates as a consequence of the increase of
the world fleet and the continuous instability in the world economy.
Despite the increase of international competition - LISNAVE managed to
achieve a positive performance, repairing 67 vessels. Although a lower
number of vessels repaired compared to the expectations at the
beginning of the year and a slight decrease in the number of vessels
repaired compared with the recent years, there has been, on average, a
significant increase in the workload per vessel.
The vessels repaired were from 39 different Clients, from 17 different
countries. Analyzing Clients ' nationality that docked most vessels,
Greece lead the list with 12 vessels, followed by Singapore with 11,
Norway with 8 and Germany with 6.
Based on the extensive
know-how accumulated over decades, LISNAVE continues to repair various
types of vessels. It is still the traditional market of oil tankers,
where LISNAVE keeps the European leadership in repairs with the
docking of 51 vessels, followed by container vessels with 6 units.
Confirming a constant trend in recent years of activity, the number of
repairs from loyal customers was very high during the year 2016 being
the result of the recognition by Ship Owners of the quality of the
work performed. This maintains the brand image of LISNAVE.
Throughout the year, TEEKAY based in Singapore and Norway, docked 8
vessels and TSAKOS COLUMBIA SHIPMANAGMENT from Greece docked 6
vessels; also the Singapore based AET and the Venezuelan PDV MARINA
docked 4 vessels each.
