Dry Docking

With professional planning, preparation and execution, we make dry docking predictable and efficient.

Every vessel is required to dry dock at least once every 5 years. The duration of a normal dry docking project is 10-14 days. If dry dock is poorly managed, the expenses and time can escalate and important defects may not be identified and corrected.

We identify objectives by engaging stakeholders, preparing comprehensive specifications and executing the project according to plan. This way, we minimise unplanned expenses and ensure high quality.
