About us

With ship-building traditions dating back to 1918, Fosen Yard offers its customers workmanship based on a century worth of experience. We have continuously kept up with the changing markets and development of new production methods and technologies. 

Our shipyard in Rissa has a large drydock (215 x 40 m) and two outfitting quays, in addition to a number of sheds and halls for production and processing of materials. We also have accommodation and messrooms for 300 workers on site, that we utilize when we have a high work load. In the recent years, our main activity has been conversions of large passenger ferries and rebuilding of aquaculture vessels.  

On 1 July 2022 Fosen Yard leased a large part of Volkswerft in Stralsund, which will be operated under the name Fosen Yard Stralsund GmbH. This yard has outstanding facilities, with a new-building hall of 300 x 108 m and one of the world’s largest ship lifts, with capacity of 25,000 tons and measuring 270 x 40 m. Our intention is to build smaller luxury cruise vessels there, in addition to doing conversions on RoPax and yachts.

We also have an in-house design and engineering company, Fosen Design & Solutions, which has a dedicated staff within the different disciplines required to make up a fully functional organization to handle both basic and detailed design, machinery, piping, HVAC, interior, electro, automation and hydrodynamics. 

Fosen Group can offer a variety of services, providing years of knowledge and experience in creating excellence for ship owners and their charterers & customers.
