DECEMBER 20, 2018 — Tersan Shipyard, Yalova, Turkey, will have a new floating dry dock in operation by the end of February 2019. The dry dock has a length of 284 m and an inner beam of 51 m. Additionally, the shipyard has extended the length of its repair berth to 270 m.
Tersan has also expanded the yard’s enclosed workshop area from 2,800 sq m to 4,000 sq m, installing brand-new equipments and machines.
“Tersan’s Yalova premises are one of the biggest, most modern and effectively organized shipyards in Europe,” says Istanbul based OKT Shipping & Trading, which represents the yard. “Besides the initial investment, the development of the yard is ongoing, meeting upcoming technologies and projects continuously.”
In addition to regular repair and conversion work, Tersan has a growing reference list of successful BWTS retrofit projects and has been winning increasingly complex newbuilding projects. Earlier this month it started cutting steel for the two coastal passenger vessels it is building for Norway’s Havila Kystruten AS.
