Stone Marine Shipcare will open a fully equipped propeller repair and modification base at the Sefine Shipyard in Turkey.
The new propeller repair base will provide Stone Marine Shipcare with a permanent Mediterranean site for the first time.

This partnership strengthens our association moving into 2020 and beyond.”
The new repair base will be fully operational at Sefine Shipyard soon and will be equipped to facilitate propeller repair and modification and CP thruster overhaul.
