In the German market the shipping community is mainly represented by medium sized family owned companies, besides the two famous liner companies Hapag Lloyd and Hamburg Süd. The German owners impressively operate the largest container fleet in the world, reflecting approximately 70% of all containerships. In the time frame 2000-2008 this fleet showed an expansion in large-size container vessels. This development gave the owners more and more problems in finding suitable repair locations to service these new large vessels. This pushed Germania Shipyard Agency to look for new ways in ship repair. Hence, in 2008 they took the chance to represent Subsea Solution Alliance, which is nowadays Subsea Global Solutions. This new cooperation was quite important for them as they saw a big potential in under water services. Subsea Global Solutions turned out to be a strong and competitive partner, with experienced staff and makers’ approvals. Under water services turned out to be a great alternative for dry docking especially by saving time and cost.

Throughout the year Germania Shipyard Agency organizes several events for greater customer relationship including their famous Alster-Lake-tour and a nice golf tournament. For sure the most important event is the SMM, the biggest shipping show in the world with 60,000 visitors.
