Maritime and metal industries

The Vorpommern coastal region with its highly modern shipyards is a maritime centre of worldwide significance. The forte of the compact shipyards, modernised since 1990, is the construction of special ships, exemplified by outstanding technology, economy and high standards of safety and environmental friendliness. Containerships, fishing vessels, special tankers and research and special ships for oceanography are built in Vorpommern. Maritime suppliers and services providers (especially in the metal industries) are among the large number of small and medium-sized enterprises which characterise the state's economic potential today.
