Simek A/S har inngått kontrakt med rederiet Sealord Group Ltd. Nelson, New Zealand, om bygging av en 82,9 meter lang fiskebåt til en verdi av over 400 millioner kroner.
Simek is a modern and well equipped shipyard located on the south coast of Norway. We employ approximately 175 workers, peaking 250 at most.
Simek has built and delivered 131 vessels over the last 48 years and have three more on order for delivery within spring 2018.
When building a ship, drawings and documentation is produced by our highly skilled technical staff at our main office in Norway. This is forwarded to our co-operating subcontractors in the Gdansk and Gdynia area in Poland where the steel sections/blocks are built. From there the ship units are transported to Simek shipyard where they are blasted and painted in our temperature and humidity controlled paint facilities before assembled on our 20 x 96 meter slipway in our heated building shed. Crane lifting capacity in building shed is 340 tonnes.
Simek at present has approx. 175 employees. We practice an apprentice program and emphasize training and certifying of our staff enabling them to become skilled workers in their field. We constantly focus on living up to our reputation of delivering on time high quality vessels.
