To meet the operational requirements of a vessel and comply with classification rules and regulations, maintenance is vital. It is also often necessary to adapt and extend the lifetime of a vessel.

Projects are always planned to take place within a fixed time schedule, to the highest quality standards and according to budget.
We are experts in refits, lifetime extensions and rejuvenation programs for all types of vessels
Every ship ages over time, requiring ship owners to invest in their assets. El Samboskani is expert in refits, lifetime extensions and renovation programmes for vessels across all markets. We can assist owners with thorough refit preparation and turn every project into a success right from the beginning.
With new technical developments and after a long lifetime of service, a vessel may not be state-of-the-art anymore. A refit may then be required to completely refresh or provide a lifetime extension of the vessel. At El Samboskani, we are well aware of the complexities of refits. Supported by strong design and engineering capacity, we can cooperate with you from the earliest stages in the refit process. And of course we are more than able to carry out any refit or rebuilding projects using our group-wide experience and capabilities.
