Floating DryDock


The new floating drydock greatly enhances the company’s service capabilities, allowing ADSB to service ships that were previously too large to be handled to their headquarters in Mussafah. The 180 length x 30 m width floating drydock allows ADSB to dock vessels up to 180m in length, or by comparison almost the length of two football pitches. The floating dock was commissioned in mid-July and received its first customer, that has undergone routine drydocking, electrical and mechanical works at the port.

The new floating dock offers a myriad of services including structural steel, mechanical, pipe and electrical repairs, state of the art hull treatment with the aid of robotic machines and tank coating work.
