Riga Shipyard is one of the largest yards in the Baltic region repairing more than 100 seagoing vessels per year and has built more than 150 hulls, some partially outfitted, since 1997.

Established in 1913 and having more than a century old history, today we continue to serve our European and Scandinavian customers focusing on ship repair, conversion and shipbuilding. Riga Shipyard co-operates with all Classification Societies, major equipment and paint manufacturers, logistics and shipping companies.

Riga Shipyard’s Quality Management System was approved by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance as complying to Quality System Management Standard ISO 9001:2008 in 2001. Furthermore, Testing Laboratory has been recognized by BUREAU VERITAS as per Rule Note NR320 for tests, examinations, dectections and analysis.

9 berths, 3 docks and two slipways are located on the banks of Daugava river channels. The yard is capable to accommodate PANAMAX size vessels for dry-docking and AFRAMAX size vessels for afloat repairs. The works are being carried out all year round.

Riga Shipyard consistently follows its policy of meeting customers’ requirements as customers’ interests come first.

We provide high quality and reasonably short repair and building time at competitive prices.

In 2013 the Riga Shipyard – the leading enterprise of the Latvian engineering industry – celebrated
its 100th anniversary.

The enterprise founded by the famous German shipbuilding firm F.Schichau became a good example for successful capital investment in the engineering industry. Torn by world wars, the enterprise was reborn every time like the mythological bird Phoenix. And again
vessels arrived later to return after repairs conducted by skillful hands to the vast expanses of the sea.

The enterprise seems to possess some special life force that has accumulated the efforts of thousands of people. Efforts of people who worked and have been working there already for a hundred years, generating through their work and energy new ideas, solutions and building new ships.
