Three repairs guarantee the Factoría Naval portfolio, which struggles to achieve another dozen

The shipyard will receive next Wednesday the ship "Cap Formentor" and its maintenance will mean 15 days of activity - two vessels will careen in July and August A new immediate repair, and it will be three with the other two hired for July and August, guarantee little by little the incipient Factoria Naval's portfolio which struggles - "with good perspectives", according the brand's Sales Manager - two achieve another dozen works more during the year.

With the arrival next week of the ship "Cap Formentor" from the ship owner Acudia Marítimos to Marin, Factoria recovers and old costumer.

Repair and maintenance tasks foreseen in the bulk carrier, 93.4 meters long and 15 meters beam, will mean a 15 days workload. It will be the second direct order of the shipyard from Marín since it restarts its activity in October of last year. The first one was in February 2013 when the "Izar Argia", from the Basque ship owner Galdar.

From October to February it had worked in several repairs result of the collaboration agreement with the shipyard Nodosa. Both signed, in January, a strategic alliance to compete in the international market that will be valid unto the end of 2013.

The consolidation of a portfolio get away the company crisis ghost of 2010 that moves the shipyard at the edge of the disappearance and that had as main landmark: a superseded creditors meeting, a drastic streamlining , and a second aborted bankruptcy proceeding barely 20 months after the first one.

If the repair of the "Cap Formentor", that according the shipyard forecasts, will arrive on the 29th of May, will mean 15 days of activity, the forecasts of Factoria Naval for the summer repairs gather 80 days workload approximately.

The new three orders are the result of a wide commercial work that has allowed Factoria Naval de Marin to recover its credibility in the sector and to position itself with good expectative in the national market of ship repair. In this context the Sales Manager José Manuel Soto said "we are fighting to achieve 12 or 14 orders in this year".

The Factoría Naval's slipways are free nowadays, without ships, therefore the shipyard staff - 23 workers- is occupied with installations maintenance tasks and doing courses which will improve the company competitiveness.
