Maritime repair and maintenance yard with Norway’s third largest dry-dock


Hamek was established in 1995 but there has been ship yard activities in Harstad since 1912. In 2005 Hamek took over the facility of the Kaarbø ship yard, including a dry-dock. The dry-dock is extended and now officially taken in use.This will give us North Norway’s largest dry-dock, 145 x 27 x 9.5 meter.

As well we have adjusted the requirements for shore power supply with delivery of, 230V / 400V / 600V – 50Hz and 440V / 690V – 60Hz and ca. 800A

We have a staff of 90 skilled workers in different departments; machine, docking, piping surface treatment, plate/welding and administration. If required we can increase the staff and have a 24 hour operation. We also work for land based industry and are Volvo Penta marine commercial dealer. Since 2013 we are Seaonics’ collaborating partner in the region of northern Norway.

Our yard has 2 facilities, both located in Harstad, which covers an area of around 90 000 m2: One location with the dry-dock for larger vessels and an ISPS area, and the other location is adapted to other type and smaller vessels, with 2 indoor slipways.
