SCHOTTEL has put into operation extended repair facilities at their German headquarters in Spay. Whereas only recently the space was used for manufacturing new drives the halls now offer ideal conditions on 2200 sqm for the repair of SCHOTTEL propulsion systems. The new mechanical workshop with various modern machines is ready for the quick processing of parts. The service warehouse was fully integrated into the Spay location and thus is ready to provide spare part globally in the shortest possible time. Thanks to short ways and efficient logistics SCHOTTEL can thus respond to customer requests even faster.


For larger drives and the range of controllable pitch propellers, SCHOTTEL has opened the Service Center North in January 2016 in Wismar, Germany. Here, too, the conditions for repairs are excellent. An on site warehouse as well as a state-of-the-art mechanical workshop keep repair times as short as possible.


„We have established excellent conditions at both sites for a fast and professional repair of all azimuth thrusters, controllable pitch propellers and manoeuvring aids. Due to our own stock of machinery and employees with a longtime experience we are able to perform repairs and overhauls with a very short reaction time and in OEM quality,” says René Lange, SCHOTTEL Director Repair International. ”With our worldwide network of service sites as well as 24/7 service hotlines  we are available for our customers anytime and anywhere. We arrange everything to keep downtime as short as possible", adds Lange.
