History

HVIDE SANDE Shipyard, Steel and Service has been in the shipbuilding industry for many years. The industry has changed from focusing on fishing vessels to a wider range of activities in the North Sea. We have tackled the challenges and changes head-on, and by being innovative and flexible we have managed to do well in a tough industry.

Throughout the years our field has moved towards greater specialisation, and the demand for customised and intelligent solutions and technologies has increased. Our company has evolved to meet such demands, and we now supply a large range of products and services, specialising in developing and manufacturing customised, advanced high quality constructions. We are prepared to meet the challenges of the future and to continue to deliver excellent solutions.
