The ship repair sector is historical in the Port of Lisbon and remains well alive and in continuous demand.
The dynamism of the sector is due to the credibility, versatility and know-how of the shipyards based at the port.
From Navalrocha in Lisbon with its dry docks as a differentiating factor, to the technical capacity of Arsenal do Alfeite, the innovation in new constructions by Navaltagus, or the specialization of Batistas shipyards in dismantling and Cecílio&Carlos Sanfins in repair, the Port of Lisbon is an important hub of national naval industry and an international reference in the sector.

See Tariffs and Regulations - Services to vessels - Ship repair for standards and forms.
