We offer repair and maintenance services to all overseas cargo ships and large yachts visiting New Zealand, and to coastal vessels and fishing boats within New Zealand. Voyage damage repairs and overhauling can be carried out either in dry-dock, afloat or by a riding gang depending on the circumstances.

Our qualified coded welders possess the skills and knowledge to work within the requirements of all major IACS member Classification Societies on both steel and aluminium hull structural renewals, piping and machineries.

We have class-approved welding procedures for all major types of work and can develop procedures to meet specific requirements such as underwater line wetback welding.

Drydock works - Aimecs

We have teams on call for urgent response during your vessel’s stay in port. Repairs and surveys will efficiently be carried-out during cargo operation, respecting both commercial schedule and class requirements.

This will typically cover:

  • Survey & steel repairs (hatch covers, gangways, piping, etc.),
  • Technical attendance for trouble shooting,
  • Stevedore damage repairing,
  • Cargo handling gear repair (spreaders, cranes sheaves & wire replacement)
  • Anchor ranging,
  • Main & auxiliary engines,
  • Purifier bowls overhauling & balancing,
  • Pumps,
  • Exhaust valve grinding, etc.
Afloat Repairs

Should the timeframe or machinery use not allow port repairs, a team of tradesmen will sail with the vessel and complete your onboard engineering job before berthing at the next port.

Riding Rang

Our marine management team comprises senior captains, engineers and procurement officers. We provide management tailored to the unique requirements of your fleet, including budget, planned maintenance, class and statutory survey, periodical audit/inspection, docking supervision.

Marine Technical Management

We can source and supply genuine and equivalent technical spare parts, deck and engine tools, and consumables through all New Zealand ports.

If required, parts can be stored at our premises for delivery onboard upon arrival. Alternately, we can custom clear, store and deliver overseas shipments to your vessel, or pick-up and send landed parts overseas.

Ship Chandling services


Through our experience in shipping, we understand that ships operate on tight schedule and cannot be delayed, stopped, or simply fall off-hire – that’s why we provide a 24/7 service, 365 days a year with on-call staff to address urgent needs.


We have developed our own high-quality Class-approved welding procedures certified to ISO and ASME standards, under our DNV-GL maritime workshop approval.

All Aimecs welders / fabricators are certified by an independent IANZ accredited third party.

Our Workshop is DNV-GL approved and we hold a stock of IACS class-certified plates.
