Work begins on Asry upgrade

Monday, February 05, 2007
Construction work on the $20m Arab Shipbuilding and Repair Yard Co. (Asry) slipway project started yesterday. The contract for the project, to be completed by February 2008, was awarded to Ahmed Mansoor Al A'ali Company. The project, comprising two slipways, each with a dry berth length of 255 m, is designed to handle vessels of up to 15,000 dead weight (dwt). A company spokesman said this would enable Asry to free about 30 per cent capacity in its existing larger docks, which would then be able to receive larger vessels. He said the company was also planning to build a 1,000 m quay wall along its basin for the future alongside repairs. Source: TradeArabia News Service
