Project management for newbuildings, conversions, repairs and innovations

At MF Shipping Group we have extensive experience in newbuilding projects ranging from tankers to dry cargo vessels. Whether it is ship repair, buying second-hand vessels, conversions, upgrading existing vessels, newbuildings or conversions, we guarantee success.

Map out your goals and ambitions

Our project management starts with a clear definition of objectives based on our clients' requirements. We then play a key role between the shipowner and the shipyard. Our aim is to meet the highest standards and regulations within the agreed timeframe and budget. We strive to exceed these expectations by, for example, proactively responding to new technological and sustainability opportunities and anticipating future legislation and regulations.
