Based in Istanbul, NAVTEK have been involved in the design and build of general cargo vessels, multipurpose vessels, and chemical tankers for many years. Established in 1999, NAVTEK work with shipyards and ports as a technical consultant and solution partner. Following the global crisis in 2008 NAVTEK focussed on the shipping sector in the Energy and Defence Industry and achieved a world first in their design of the floating power plant – Powership®, for Karadeniz.
