ASRY, a ship and rig repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, recently saw six vessels under repair simultaneously on its dual slipways in a sign that the yard’s small and medium sized vessel repair business continues to flourish since the opening of the its state-of-the-art slipways.

Slipway occupancy at ASRY has risen year on year since they were opened in 2008, with 2013’s revenues attributed directly to slipway work increasing 7.24% on 2012. The contribution to ASRY’s overall revenue has also seen gains since they were launched. Last year the slipways contributed 6.5% of total revenues for the yard.

The six vessels, comprising of four tugs, a hopper dredger and a jack-up rig, matched the previous record for number of vessels accommodated simultaneously on the slipways. They included the Britoil 64, a tug owned by Britoil Offshore Services in ASRY for routine drydock hull treatment, crane shaft overhaul and top overhauling of port and starboard engines; the Smit Martinique, a tug owned by SmitLamnalco having routine drydocking jobs, starboard engine overhaul, and seal renewal of lower gear box; the Al Moayyed 26 and 24, tugs owned by Almoayyed Marine Services in for routine drydocking work; the UDC Blue, a hopper dredger owned by United Dredging Company; and Arabiyah 5 a jack-up rig operated by Saudi Aramco.

The twin slipways, each with a dry berth length of 255 meters, are suited for accommodating offshore service boats, large tugs and supply vessels. Their vertical curve design also facilitates new building activities at its upper end. Vessels up to approximately 15,000 dwt, and with drafts up to 4.5 meters can be easily slipped up under normal daily tidal conditions. The slipways are equipped with all required shore facilities and are serviced by two 80-metric-ton crawler cranes with ample reach.
