Blohm + Voss has appointed Jean-Gabriel Tridon as general manager and Dieter Pladeck as finance director for its new superyacht maintenance and refit facility in La Ciotat in the south of France.

In La Ciotat, Blohm+Voss will focus on the maintenance and refit of yachts over 80m.

Tridon is a French citizen and holds a degree in nautical sciences (Master Mariner) from the University of Applied Sciences Ostfriesland in Germany, a degree in naval architecture and ocean engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen (Germany) and a degree in marine services from Lloyd’s Maritime Academy in England. He has worked at sea and ashore for renowned companies such as Hapag-Lloyd and Meyer Werft, and worked with Blohm+Voss in Hamburg as dock operations coordinator and construction manager.

Pladeck is a qualified banker and a graduate economist. After studying economic sciences at the Ruhr University in Bochum (Germany), he worked for various renowned companies of the ThyssenKrupp group before joining Blohm+Voss in 1998. At Blohm+Voss, he has been head of finance and accounting, and general manager, and an authorized officer for several subsidiaries.

“The goal is clear: we want to get the facility ready for our customers as soon as possible,” Tridon said. “Our main focus within the first months will be to set up the facility and the local organization, and to build a strong network of local suppliers to get the job done.”

The operational business in La Ciotat is scheduled to start by Nov. 1.
