How it all started…

Our story began in 1989 with the Labra family established in Ecuador coming from Chile with new ideas and projects. The Asenabra Shipyard was founded on September 18th, 1990, in the midst of a fishing and aquaculture boom, the Ecuadorian naval industry required more qualified shipyards being that investments in vessels was at a rise.

Inspired by train wagon transfers, Asenabra developed its very own Transfer System Turntable. This process maximizes the shipyard’s productivity.

The system was created back in 1998 and still is one of the main pillars for the shipyard’s operations, making it easier to distribute vessels throughout our facilities, improving our performance and providing easier access for our clients.
