Algae, barnacles and other vegetation have been inhibiting ships for centuries. Even fogging with copper plates, arsenic paints or other technical tricks have not prevented nature from being responsible for 10 to 30 percent additional resistance in the water. Cleaning in the dock is still the only way to get rid of this resistance, at least temporarily.
Repairs and regular technical inspections make dock stays mandatory. But where can the new giants of shipping, the megaliner and the oversized freighters with their lengths of more than 350 metres dock? There are surprisingly few places in the world where this is possible.
We are planning to build a dock that can lift even the largest ships.We project the construction of a modular dock that can lift even the largest ships. Located in a strategic position on one of the megaliner traffic routes, it will be easily accessible for maintenance work.We are planning to build a dock that can lift even the largest ships.
