Changes at Malta Drydocks

With a healthy repair and conversion orderbook extending beyond the summer and every one of its seven large drydocks occupied, Malta Drydocks has managed to instantly expand its facilities. This has been achieved by absorbing neighboring Malta Shipbuilding Company and its two drydocks capable of accepting vessels up to 120,000 dwt.
