The ship repair yard was founded by Red Army on April 27, 1946.[3] The Ivan Susanin was the first ship repaired at this yard. The shipyard developed quickly, from Soviet ship repair yard to VVB Schiffsreparaturwerft Wismar, in 1948, renamed to Hochseeschiffbau Mathias-Thesen-Werft Wismar VEB, in 1951. The first new ship V. Chkalov was built for the Soviet Union as war reparations after World War II on March 30, 1954.

In 2016, Genting Hong Kong purchased Nordic Yards Wismar and combined it with the Nordic Yards Warnemunde and Stralsund shipyards and the German Lloyd Werft shipyard to form the Lloyd Werft Group,[4] subsequently reorganized as MV Werften.[5]
