As a DNV-approved welding workshop, we specialize in repairing and maintaining overseas cargo ships, large yachts, coastal vessels, and fishing boats visiting New Zealand. We offer a wide range of services, including voyage damage repairs, overhauling, and routine maintenance.

At Aimecs Engineering, we believe in delivering efficient and effective services to our clients. To achieve this, we have equipped our workshop with state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and we have implemented a robust safety protocol that our staff follows closely. We specialize in both steel and aluminum hull structural renewals, piping, and machinery, and we have class-approved welding procedures in place and can develop procedures to meet specific requirements such as underwater line wetback welding.

We understand the importance of building lasting relationships with our clients, and we always go the extra mile to ensure that their marine engineering needs are met.

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,

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 welding 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 (International Association of Classification Societies) class-certified plates.
