Repair technology

Tsuneishi Shipbuilding’s Ship Repair Division, recognizing itself as a “first-class ship doctor” and moving forward together with Japanese and global shipowners and crews to live up to high its expectations, now promptly and securely meets detailed repair and modification needs, making the best use of its acute powers of diagnosis and problem solving as well as flexible proposal capabilities.

The world’s 5th largest company in terms of shipbuilding volume.
We also enjoy high reliability in repair operations.

In addition to the Tsuneishi Factory (Hiroshima) in Japan, to pursue our international strategies, we established TSUNEISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES (CEBU), Inc. (the Philippines) in 1994 and TSUNEISHI GROUP (ZHOUSHAN) SHIPBUILDING Inc. (China) in 2003. At present, the total number of employees exceeds 10,000. Active development, etc., of not only our original vessel “TESS” (Tsuneishi Economical Standard Ship) but also new ships has led to our significant growth to achieve the position of the world’s 5th largest company in terms of shipbuilding volume. And, of course, the repair division is also internationally well-reputed due to its high-level technologies and proposal capabilities while continuing to offer high-quality products and services that live up to the expectations of global shipowners.

Four docks and seven wharves are fully equipped.
Vessels of up to 200,000 DWT can be docked.

The repair division handles repairs and other work for about 150 ships a year. The division is engaged in a wide variety of docking repair work from ordinary repairs mainly in the form of periodical inspections, to sudden accident-related repairs and then to modifications such as for a change of application, life extension, or a larger hull.
Four private docks and seven wharves are fully equipped, and vessels of up to 200,000 DWT can also be docked. As indicated by the records of changing from Aframax to shuttle tankers, we play a key role in a shipowner’s operating plan on the strength of our advanced technologies, rigid scheduling management and quality control, and proposal capabilities, thereby greatly contributing to maritime safety.

Prompt and accurate ballast water management system (BWMS) retrofit work

A ballast water management system affects the operation of a ship. We recommend the optimum maker, depending upon the type of ship, ballast pump capacity, and space for installation while considering the total economy of initial and running costs with top priority given to preventing the ship’s safety from being impaired due to the installation. A proposal is made, with maker comparison for performance, calculation of modification expenses as well as of lifecycle costs, and an “anxious-to-know” construction period borne in mind.
Moreover, we have factories in China and the Philippines, to which high-level engineers are sent for field management and guidance, and, therefore, higher quality, construction period shortening, and cost curtailment are possible not only at home but also abroad.
From design, material and equipment procurement, parts making and fitting to post-equipment installation inspections and examinations and ship class certificate acquisition, all the ballast water management system retrofit work can be managed collectively or separately for each process.
