This spring Derecktor Shipyards of Connecticut will put its’ newly expanded dry dock to work. The dock will allow the yard to fully service vessels up to 4,000 long tons, 400 ft in length, 82 ft in beam and 20 ft draft. The expanded dry dock will also provide a seamless method of moving these large vessels from the water onto the repair apron or into the yard’s main building via the dock and a system of air casters. The expanded dry dock will greatly increase the yard’s capacity for repair and refit of multiple vessels during peak periods.  Steve Shaw, Derecktor Service Manager, commented, “The New dry dock not only lets us grow our work load, but let us easily transfer large vessels into our 300 foot building for major refits and other big jobs requiring a covered, climate controlled environment.   We can now handle virtually every large vessel.”  Jim Hammell, the Derecktor Engineer supervising the dry dock expansion, added “The new dry dock will make us far more efficient and cost effective in handling large vessels of all types.  This lets customers take advantage of Derecktor world class workmanship at extremely competitive rates.”
