Astilleros Canarios, S.A. (ASTICAN), with an own staff of about 200 plus subcontractors, is a privately-owned ship repair yard capable to undertake repair, maintenance and conversion works of all type of vessels.

ASTICAN is located in the port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), off the North West coast of Africa. The special geographical situation of the Canary Islands, with an average temperature of 21.3º C year round and very low rainfall level, makes the performance of countless jobs easy.

Any vessel can be drydocked with just 24 hours’ notice.

As from 1994 ASTICAN has been granted the ISO Quality Management System Standard by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Limited updated to ISO9001-2000.
