Covered Dry Dock

Able to accommodate vessels of up to 60 metres LOA and draught of 3.5 metres the dry dock benefits from a hydraulic submerging dock gate, 3 tonne travelling gantry crane and high output single and 3 phase power.

The covered dry dock provides the unique facility of a rolling building allowing for year-round working in all weather conditions. The building is movable to allow access for equipment such as cranes to work on vessels in the dock.

In addition, the site includes fabrication and machine shops. A large joinery shop, ship store is also provided. Offices, toilet and shower facilities is complemented by ample car parking.
