At the Okean shipyard in Nikolaev, a new dry dock batoport has been completed. All devices and systems are fully assembled. At the final stage, painting of the structure continues. The plant's specialists are developing an operation to transport and install a batoport, which will take place in the coming months.
Okeana dry dock is one of the largest in Europe and the only one available in Ukraine. It has a length of 355 meters, a width of 60, and a depth of 17.1 meters. The pre-dock site has an area of 35 thousand square meters. The dry dock is equipped with two gantry cranes with a lifting capacity of 320 tons each and four erection cranes of 80 tons each.
Restoring the dry dock allows the Ocean Shipyard to both accept heavy-duty ships for repairs and implement unique shipbuilding programs.
Work on the creation of a new design of the dry dock shutter, which will provide a reliable overlap of the chamber and the possibility of regular use of the dry dock, was started in April this year. The completion of the restoration of the dry dock gate is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.
