Spain’s Cardama Shipyard completed its 1000th ship repair project
Spain's Cardama Shipyard has reported another milestone in its illustrious history since the turn of the century, after completing its 1000th ship repair project.
Established in Vigo, Northwest Spain in 1916, the shipyard has built a world-class reputation in shipbuilding and ship repair with an order book spanning more than 100 years.
Cardama Managing Director Mario Cardama said 2020 heralds another significant milestone for the yard – one of Spain's busiest – after completing its 1000th docking ship since 2000.
“This is a firm signal of our burning ambition to continue driving growth. Cardama shipyard is steeped in history and highly regarded for its shipbuilding and ship-repair pedigree, however, we have remained relevant for more than a century by embracing change and emerging technologies. Cardama is a progressive and dynamic business and we have succeeded by focusing on client satisfaction – combining our deep maritime engineering knowledge and cutting edge solutions,” Cardama Managing Director Mario Cardama stated.
Cardama's latest ventures included a wide variety of vessels including oil recovery, ocean exploration, marine rescue, emergency response, trawlers, long-liner, fishing survey, all types of tugs and dredgers.
Mr. Cardama said large amounts of repeat work over the last 20 years have been a key factor in returning record breaking performances.
“In recent years we have worked hard to streamline our service level to add greater value to clients and we continually invest in training to ensure we have highly skilled staff. Quality is also a key element within our competitive strategy, and we involve all workers in the common goal of continuous quality improvement. This is reflected in our international certifications including Bureau Veritas ISO 9001 and ISO 14001," he added.
