Shipbuilding

Where excellence is reality

Highly profitable welding in modern shipbuilding

Cruises and ferries, merchant ships, special vessels. Moving people, raw materials, ready products, oil and gas. Built in multiple places, travelling around the globe. Could there be a more demanding context for a welding production?

Faster construction times

One ship is the sum of its parts. In a multi-site shipbuilding project, solutions  which reduce the time needed in equipment set-up, welding documentation or procedure check-up are worth of gold.

Lower costs

In modern shipbuilding, every inch matters. Highly competitive global market searches lighter materials and new techniques to meet the profitability expectations at every phase of the project. Knowing the latest possibilities might bring you the deal.

Minimized risks

Versatile international and national standards, norms and laws pave the way for maritime safety and pollution prevention. Production practices meet the needs of different ship types in local shipyards. Still, the well-being of our seas or the safety of your passengers cannot be compromised in any circumstances.


Peace-of-mind is not an illusion.

It is the result of the welding excellence.

Passenger vessels

The world's biggest passenger ship, Allure of the Seas, has more than 2.4 km of weld seams and more than one million kilograms of filler material. Made up of 181 sections, the variety of materials, welding processes, and subcontractors is huge. Both manual and automated welding are needed in the production process.

In complicated multi-site welding projects, Kemppi increases your productivity with the 360-degree view on your welding production. You save time in the fleet and production management without compromising your customer's safety.

Oil and gas tankers, container ships, dry cargo ships, bulk carriers

Depending on your load, you choose the right type of a merchant ship. Regardless of your load, the reliability of the ship is priceless in meeting your business targets. Kemppi welding management solutions have a built-in quality control and welding guidance. They ensure that each weld holds and is made according the right welding procedure. Each weld is also fully traceable throughout the lifetime of your ship.

Special vessels

High-strength steels (HSS) have been under spotlight when searching for new weight reductions in welded structures. Kemppi is pioneering this development in icebreakers, where reduced weld joint volumes and welding times directly increase the profitability of shipbuilding.
