Damen Shiprepair Curaçao floating dock operational
Damen Shiprepair Curaçao (DSCu), has on 2 November commissioned its large floating C dock. After the final tests had been carried out in the morning, the C Dock was submerged onto the equalized seabed. DSCu Nautical department, with the help of local KTK pilots and tugs subsequently docked the first commercial ship, a 63,400 tonnes deadweight bulkcarrier, thus putting the C dock into service.
“This marks a special milestone and we are very proud of this,” Lodewijk Franken, DSCu’s managing director commented about the 230 by 45 metres Panamax-class dock. “It is highly rewarding to see the yard’s infrastructure today, following an intensive period of improvements, and to have the first ship in our C dock.” It is one of two floating docks in which Damen has invested. Both docks arrived jointly at the Caribbean island of Curaçao on 30 April 2018 and are part of a wider investment programme for DSCu since its takeover by Damen in 2017.
