Ship Repair

HUD is Hong Kong's leading ship repairer with 160 years of tradition, providing dry-docking, afloat and harbour repair services in Hong Kong at the centre of international trade and commerce.

HUD was created in 1973 from the merger of Hongkong and Whampoa Dock Company and Taikoo Dockyard and Engineering Company, the two dominant forces in Hong Kong's ship repair industry at the time.

When it comes to experience, technical expertise and quality workmanship, many owners will agree that HUD is among the best in this region, especially for machinery repairs. HUD also has an excellent reputation for on time dry-docking and completion of repairs and our ability to handle unexpected additional works arising during a dry-docking within the original quoted time is seen as a major plus by owners.


You can be rest assured that if your ships are placed with us, we will take care of business for you.
HUD offers 24-hour ship repair services from its dockyard on Tsing Yi Island, which is in close proximity to Kwai Chung Container Terminals and Hong Kong International Airport. Facilities include one of the biggest floating docks in the region, capable of docking vessels up to 300m x 41.50m, deep water berth of up to 12.50m draft and travelling cranes of up to 70 tonnes lifting capacity. The floating dock is supported by well-equipped steel, machine, pipe work, electrical and propeller workshops, and a comprehensive inventory of mobile land plant and marine craft.

Our workshops are fully accredited to ISO 9001-2000 quality system, ensuring quality repair and fabrication works. HUD is also the authorized service agent for Blohm + Voss Simplex Compact seals in this region.

    HUD provides 24-hour routine and emergency repairs and maintenance work to the 30,000 over ocean-going vessels calling Hong Kong port each year.

    Repairs and maintenance is carried out to vessels at berths, buoys, and anchorage under tight schedules due vessels' short turn around time in port, and is fully supported by modern on-shore facilities and services at the main dockyard on Tsing Yi Island.

    Servicing the maintenance and repair needs of these vessels requires an experienced company dedicated to quality, speed and cost-effectiveness like HUD.
