Floating docks arrive in Curaçao

Cosco Heavy Transport's semi-submersible vessel Xin Guang Hua has delivered two floating docks to Damen Shiprepair Curaçao (DSCu) in the southern Caribbean.

The larger of the two floating docks - a Panamax-Class dock measuring 230 m by 45 m - will be used for tankers, containerships and other large vessels. The smaller unit measures 108 m by 23 m.

The docks arrived at the port of Willemstad in Curaçao. DSCu has begun works on the internal compartments of the docks to make them ready for operations. Onshore and offshore works are well under way in order to bring the floating docks into service.
