• Repnaval (from Zamakona Yards Group) completes work on the capacity expansion of the nr 4 slipway

    The dean shipyard in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Repnaval. SA, belonging to the group Zamakona Yards, is already operating its number 4 new slipway.


    After an investment of nearly 5 million Euros, this car will in practice double the capacity of existing stranded because from now this slipway can accommodate vessels up to 120 meters length by 20 meters beam and 5,500 tons. With these new capabilities Repnaval can serve almost 80% of the vessels that operate in its area.


    While the yard has four slipways that can reach up to 120 meters in length, the most important innovation is the ability to drag because previously the limit was 3,200 tons.


    “We have undertaken this major investment mainly to respond to the numerous fleets of OSV ships operating our area, some of which have had to stop attending because they cannot get their specifications, especially in tonnage” says Mr. Álvaro Garaygordóbil, CEO of the Zamakona Yards group in the Canary Islands.
