Uljanik and 3.Maj in Top 100 Shipyards in World

Lauren Simmonds

Two Croatian shipyards make the top 100.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 14th of January, 2018, the final month of 2017 saw the final result of the contracting of shipyard jobs on both a global and a domestic scale improve.

According to data from Jadranbrod, 2017 concluded with 49 percent more newbuilds across the world than were concluded back in 2016, and out of a total of 902 contracted vessels with 23.3 million CGT (compensated gross tonnage),  worth 58.7 billion dollars, Croatian shipyards introduced six ships with 65,800 CGT, worth 252.5m dollars into their order books.

Generally speaking, last year’s result has improved when compared to the year before it, but it is still below the level that it was fifteen years ago.

The value of Croatia’s operations is at the level of 2016, with the first six months of the year being extremely ”dry” and the first ship being contracted only in the summer, more specifically in July, with the following two months seeing three more contracted, followed by two newbuilds in December.

On a world level, 3,453 vessels with approximately 74.6 million CGT were ”booked” by the end of the year, with China holding a 35 percent share, followed by Japan and South Korea, while Croatia held 9th with a share of 0.7%.

The best ranked Croatian shipyard on the world list is Uljanik Brodogradište at 76th place, followed by 3. May (95th place), Brodosplit (108 place), and Brodotrogir (123rd place).
