There's nothing you can do to speed it up. All derelict ship repairs are completed based on the damage that needs to be repaired and your constructor's repair speed. The World Destroyer type ships require freighter supplies, but that's the only type that does.

Don't worry about it. It'll be done when it's done.

The damaged abandoned ships that spawn in homeworld systems in PreWarp games always take an unusually long time to repair. I'm not sure if this is intended for balance reasons or is a bug, I've always assumed the former.

If you select your constructor, double click its name and then go to the 'construction yards' tab you can see the % progress. It is slow but you will see it moving towards completion given time.

Your construction speed for repair starts out VERY slow but by the time you get up to level 7 Automated Manufacturing, you can repair stuff quickly. Of course by then you don't need those abandoned ships anymore LOL.
