CONCRETE FLOATING DRY DOCK

CONCRETE FLOATING DRY DOCK

GLE&C constructed South East Asia's largest Concrete floating dry dock that was specially commissioned by an American company. The dry dock will be used for the construction, maintenance as well as repair of ships and naval crafts. Designed for durability of 200 years, this newest dry dock in the market has recorded an engineering breakthrough in the adoption of high quality concrete for marine construction. Made using high strength Grade 85 concrete, the completed structure is a hybrid concrete pontoon and steel wing wall. At a height of 15 metres, the dry dock measures 138 metres long and 46 metres wide with clear working space of 36 metres between wing walls. Weighing 15,000 tonnes, the dry dock is designed to lift ships up to 9500 tonnes and can repair 2 to 3 ships concurrently depending on its size. Supported by over 500 local manpower and an international team of designers, consultants and engineering experts, the construction for the dry dock spanned over 13 months since starting in March 2016.
