Tersan Shipyard Inc. is belonging to Tersan group of companies providing services in four maritime sectors, i) new ship building, ii) ship repair, docking & conversion, iii) ship owning & operation and iv) ship agency services. Relatively young group’s, especially the ship building division has become one of the leading players in Turkey and as well as in Europe. Tersan’s sustained success that is achieved by its experienced human resources, modern facilities, customer support and reliability guided the company to gain unique and challenging big orders.
Tersan’s history goes back to mid. nineties when the group was initially established as a ship service company which included agency services, operations and management providing a wide range of services for the vessels going in and out of Black Sea region via passing through Bosphorus straight. During this period the group has also purchased two ships and started operating them worldwide.
n 2001 Tersan Group established their new building yard in the same region of Tuzla/Istanbul but separately from the repair yard. The first new building project was successfully delivered in 2002 which is followed by a number of challenging new building projects until 2008. However the limited space in Tuzla/Istanbul region and the capacities of the current yard no longer met with Tersan’s future targets of building huge offshore ships and handy-max commercial vessels, consequently Tersan decided to invest in a new shipyard in Yalova city with much more capacities and still benefitting logistics advantages of easy access to/from Istanbul.
