Chantier Naval de Marseille

Chantier Naval de Marseille (CNM) was founded in April 2010 by San Giorgio del Porto to operate dry-docks No. 8 and 9 of Grand Port Maritime de Marseille (Marseille Port Authority) and from 2016 dry-dock No. 10, the biggest graving dock in the Mediterranean sea. The dry-dock No.10 is one of the world largest facilities. It can accommodate the new generation of mega ships up to 465 m from Spring 2017.

Despite its relatively young age, the yard draws on a long and venerable legacy. Indeed, with over 175 years of services and craftsmanship, Marseille has positioned itself as an expert venue for ship repair, maintenance and conversion. Over the past century, the architecture of companies and facilities has changed considerably as the environment adjusts to the market. The yard employs 110 people including naval architects and mechanical engineers, skilled workers and specialized technicians.

The yard is located in the eastern section of the Port of Marseille, the largest in France, in the center of a large traffic zone extending from Genoa to Barcelona. The harbor benefits from direct access to the western Mediterranean Sea with no tide or lock restrictions, which means vessels up to 11.70 m can enter CNM docks with no time constraints.

CNM, together with its sister company San Giorgio del Porto, operates eight dry-docks and over 2 km of equipped repair quays. The shipyard is capable of handling the largest vessels and is perfectly positioned to support the needs of the maritime, offshore and renewable energy sectors, providing specialized service and assistance 24/7/365.
