Gibraltar ship repair facility Gibdock say that it has been operating close to full capacity throughout 2013, with offshore sector business the main driver. Edited comments by Richard Beards
, Managing Director, Gibdock follow:

"We have seen a number of high profile offshore vessel-operating customers returning. Repeat business from such demanding clients is a testament to our performance, with everyone from project planners and managers to yard craftsmen closely involved in ensuring we complete these complex jobs on schedule and to specification.

As a consequence, we have also been able to secure some important new business from other leading offshore operators in 2013. Technip docked its Wellservicer with us earlier this year, and at time of writing Subsea 7’s Antares is in the yard. We hope that having experienced the capabilities of our highly talented and dedicated workforce for the first time, these companies will also return.

Going forward offshore remains a primary growth target for Gibdock and its agency network, given our location advantage for owners operating in West Africa and Mediterranean markets in particular."
