Lindenau: Developments On The Containership, Tanker Fronts

Kiel-based Lindenau offers newbuilding, repair, conversion and lengthening, diversification products (as well as steel and engine works), and consulting and engineering services.

Lindenau, an efficient medium-sized yard, is able to design and construct newbuildings up to 40,000-dwt, and its product range includes double-hull product tankers, LPG ethylene gas carriers, container-feeder vessels, and special purpose-built ships, to name a few.

The yard is currently working on an order for two 12,650-dwt, double-hull tankers for the Republic of China. The tankers, which were awarded last September to Lindenau in cooperation with MTW Schiffswerft GmbH of Wismar, are of the Lindenau Tanker Class 2000 type and reportedly meet the latest environmental, safety and economical demands.

On the repair side, Lindenau is equipped with five-ton, 10-ton and 60-ton crane capacities, with floating docks with lifting capacity of 1,600- and 10,000-tons. Its repair quay is 2,460 ft. (750 m) long. For the first half of 1994, planned capacity for the repair division far exceeded expectations, with three large ship damages repaired and 45 additional repair works carried out through mid- July.

New developments at Lindenau include an investment to widen the building berth, allowing the yard to build double-hull oil and cbemical tankers up to 40,000 dwt. Lindenau has also been working on development of high-speed, high ice class containerships from 300 to 1,600 TEU. Finally, in the field of offshore technology, the yard is working on a newly designed offshore safety vessel with naval architect Jurgen Issleib, a development which will be presented at SMM '94.
