Description Visit website

Nodosa Shipyard is a company specialized in Shipbuilding and Industrial Sector. Founded more than forty years ago, their activity, almost exclusively dedicated to metal hulled vessels, involves the design, construction, modification, repair and maintenance of vessels, both in dry dock and afloat, for in-house builds and third parties alike.

In 1982, its boiler workshop was opened and, in the early '90's, it acquired the concession of some small dry docks. After several stages of growth and expansion, the former were to become what is now the Factory and the main offices. The latter became the large shipyard that it is today in the port zone of Marín (Pontevedra).

Alongside that, other work centres have been added, such as the Mechanical Workshop, fitted with the state of the art of technology for machining, repair work and manufacturing. It counts on cutting processes, sheet forming and mounting, as well as the most specialised and appropriate equipment and means to carry out machining and manufacture of parts and special machines.

Furthermore, the company currently counts on a repair workshop in the port of Marín and a bigger production and assembly workshop, in the same port.

 Nodosa knows that the best underpin their work are experience, modern infrastructures constantly being expanded, their production and technological capacity, and seriousness present in all of their processes. So they have built over 300 vessels throughout their history, and fitted out and docked more tan 130 vessels a year, making it a leading national actor in the sector and main activity at the moment: shipbuilding, ship conversion, ship repair and maintenance.
