Tugdock promises dry docking savings
Due to be launched at Seawork International 2018 is Tugdock; a new invention that promises to save cost and time by taking the dry dock to the vessel rather than vice versa.
Tugdock is a patented modular floating dry dock capable of lifting any vessel or floating structure from 50 to 2,000 tonnes clear of the water at a fraction of the cost of standard dry docks. The Tugdock is road transportable in standard shipping containers, so is taken to the vessel.
The Tugdock uses individually controlled buoyancy bags contained within an open steel space frame structure. All the components arrive on site and are quickly assembled in dimensions to suit the size and shape of the vessel to be lifted.
Tugdock is designed and built to Lloyds, Det Norst Veritas and BS6349 standard and is available to hire or buy Worldwide
