Monday, November 27, 2006
Dubai Maritime City has placed the first shiplift within its Industrial Precinct. Industrial Precinct of the City will incorporate two shiplifts manufactured by world-renowned shiplift specialist company, Hydraudyne Rexroth, said an official. One of the shiplifts will be 90 m long and 25 m wide and designed to lift vessels up to 3,000 tonnes while the other will be 140 m long and 30 m wide and designed to lift boats of up to 6,000 tonnes. Both the shiplifts will be capable of 14 m vertical travel and the platforms and vessels shall be raised and lowered by a series of winches and steel ropes along the length of the shiplifts. Dubai Maritime City is going full steam ahead with setting up the new shiplift facilities, which will be commissioned by March 2007. Construction of the support structures for the new facilities is currently under way. When completed, Dubai Maritime City will be the world's biggest and the most comprehensive maritime complex spread across 227 hectares of man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and Dubai Dry Docks, and will be surrounded by the waters of the Arabian Gulf.
