Astilleros San Enrique from Vigo resumes ship repair with the maintenance of a freezer trawler

The ship 'Igueldo' arrived at the port last Friday and these works are expected to be completed within a month

Astilleros San Enrique from Grupo Marina Meridional, formerly Factorías Vulcano, has "actively" resumed its ship repair work with the entry into its facilities of the freezer trawler 'Igueldo', which operates in the waters of the Malvinas Islands and will be tuned up in Vigo. As reported by the company, it was last Friday, June 2, when the ship, operated by Igueldo Fisheries, arrived in the city for maintenance. With the work to set up the trawler, Astilleros San Enrique resumes ship repair. These works are expected to be completed within a month.

"The ship, 83 meters long and with state-of-the-art equipment, has relied on the experience of the Grupo Meridional holding company, which is currently completing the investments committed to the port of Vigo," the firm has claimed. In a statement, Marina Meridional has recalled the forecast for the coming years of Astilleros San Enrique, which will have a staff of about 50 workers (including its own personnel and auxiliary companies) and that it will undertake an "important improvement plan on the Teis area lands”.

On the one hand, it has already completed the refurbishment of the south dock, which is operational and with ships docked. On the other hand, the concreting is being completed, adapting the transit areas, and testing the mooring elements of the North Dock, which are expected to be finished next week.

This investment program will make it possible to improve the machinery, including the cranes, the overhead cranes and the 30 and 125 tonne lifting platforms, which are already operational.

Likewise, Astilleros San Enrique has already completed the first phase of the heated automotive wind tunnel, which is being installed in Gothenburg (Sweden) and whose second phase will conclude this summer. Its construction has been carried out on the land of the shipyard in Vigo.
