Individual ship conversions made to measure for more economic efficiency. General refurbishment, new engine or ship extension - we offer quality work and a fair price-performance ratio.


Ship refurbishment

In order to maintain or increase the value of a ship, conversion or modernization work must be carried out over time.

ÖSWAG carries out conversions, extensions or modernizations professionally and on schedule. Our shipyard is equipped with workshops and technical facilities, which are necessary for a flexible and smooth stay.

Many criteria are already taken into account during planning and construction, so that a fairly accurate cost estimate including labor can be produced.

Proposals are prepared in compliance with standards, specifications and guidelines and implemented after approval by the client.

We will be happy to visit you!

For various works we are by far not limited to our location in Linz, our assembly team is also happy to come to you.

Marine Refit and Retrofit

We are happy to advise you to get the most out of your existing ship.

old becomes new

Complete renovation

The complete renovation is the top class of all renovation works.

You have an old worn-out ship and the appropriate small change? You want to renovate the ship from scratch? We will be happy to support you in your building project.

In the case of a general refurbishment , often only the hull of the ship remains, all important installations are no longer state of the art and have to be renewed.

After the refurbishment, the ship, inside and out, shines in new splendor and offers your passengers a whole new experience.

You want to design the interior according to a certain era? You can count on us for this as well.

2017-2019 General renovation of the MS Austria

The interior design was recreated in the Art Deco style of the time of construction (1928).

Reduction of CO2 emissions

New engine

ÖSWAG has extensive experience in the holistic analysis and design of drive systems.

We handle the changeover to a modern Stage V diesel engine (contribution to significant exhaust gas reduction). We also carry out exhaust gas aftertreatment (diesel particulate filter or SCR catalytic converter = additional emission limitation) .

Would you like to reduce your ecological footprint sustainably?

We will be happy to draw up concepts for converting to alternative propulsion solutions. Let's set an example together for ecologically sustainable shipping.

Capacity increase

Ship extension

Due to good utilization, more passengers could be transported? We will gladly check the possibilities and take over the ship extension.

Increasing the size of a loading area can also increase efficiency.

Ship extensions are considerably less expensive than newbuildings and sometimes provide the same benefits and purpose.

Laser measurement

All plans of our newbuildings and conversions are in our archives - by now we own the largest collection of shipbuildings on the Danube. Due to these records we are able to react on rebuildings and repairs very quickly.

If the plans of a ship are not available in our archives, we have the possibility to take a close look at the ship by means of modern 3D surveying
