The company has moved its two largest drydocks and plans to move two additional drydocks to the facility before the end of Ap ril 2003. The new facility allows the company to handle deeper draft vessels than the company has been able to service at its other facilities and therefore opens up a market niche from which the company has historically been limited from participating.”
