Floating docks operational in Curaçao

Published in category: Shiprepair & Conversion

In November 2018, Damen Shiprepair Curaçao (DSCu) commissioned its floating docks, named C-dock and D-dock respectively. The commissioning of the docks is an historic milestone for DSCu and one of which the yard is extremely proud.

Both docks arrived at the Caribbean island of Curaçao at the end of April last year as part of a wider investment programme at the yard, following its takeover by Damen in 2017. The C-dock is the larger of the two, measuring 230 x 45 metres.

With the floating docks in operation, the yard now boasts four drydocks, two graving and two floating docks, significantly increasing DSCu’s capabilities and flexibility.
