Our Innovations

An innovative power house for naval technology.

We are entirely committed to further developing naval technologies and continuously setting new standards for ourselves. Innovation to us, is not just a buzzword – it is part of our daily business and mentality as thyssenkrupp Marine Systems: We think ahead. We think different. We think innovative. 

Based on our long shipbuilding tradition and our state-of-the-art expertise we work closely with our customers worldwide to further advance our renowned submarines and naval vessels, as well as developing new future-proof designs ready for construction at our yards or selected sites in costumer countries.

This means: By strengthening our teams, locations and maintaining a close communication with our customers worldwide, we anticipate about the future demands and requirements.


Innovations are an essential driver for our work. On the other hand, our tradition sets the base for us as a successful company. Both history and future are key components when it comes to reaching our goal: becoming the most modern naval company in Europe.
