ASRY Expands Slipway Development

Tuesday, August 08, 2006
ASRY completed the final design and specification for the new slipway, to be launched in the last quarter of 2007. The original design called for a single slipway, some 26m wide and 226m long with the capability of being able to handle three vessels at the same time with two side transfer bays. This capability has now been enhanced to accommodate four vessels at any one time using twin slipways. The enhanced designed now includes two parallel slipways, which are now 255m long. This new configuration is designed to be capable of handling four vessels. The way the new slipways have been configured is of the vertical curve design, allowing two vessels to be simultaneously berthed, end to end on each slipway. Both slipways are in parallel with a total width of the slipway being some 64m. The overall standing area for the vessel is now 275m. The limiting sizes for vessels will remain the same for this new figuration with the maximum length of vessels will remain the same for this new figuration with the maximum length of vessels being 140m, the maximum breadth 20m with the extreme draft of 6m and a displacement of 5,000 tons maximum per vessel.
