Additionally one covered dry-dock with a capacity of approximately 300 m (980 ft) can be used in Kiel.

The group comprises today Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH, Kiel, TKMS Blohm + Voss Nordseewerke Gmbh, Emden and Hamburg, Blohm + Voss Shipyards GmbH and Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH, Hamburg, as well as Kockums AB, Sweden, and Hellenic Shipyards S.A., Greece.
