Thailand’s Unithai Shipyard and Engineering Limited continues to develop the shipyard’s capacity and capabilities in ship repair services in response to client needs. 

Unithai Shipyard awarded a contract to China’s Huarun Dadong Dockyard to build a floating dock 984 feet in length and 170 feet wide with a lifting capacity of 48,000 metric tons, making it the largest dock ever seen in Thailand
 
“This new floating dock will increase Unithai Shipyard’s capacity and capabilities to accommodate Aframax and Post-Panamax vessels of up to 170,000 DWT in dry dock for repairs and maintenance,” Unithai Shipyard Managing Director Teerapon Udomkanjananan said. “Together with the existing 50,000-DWT-capacity floating dock, Unithai Shipyard is able to undertake the entire range of ship repair services, up to more than 200,000 DWT.”
 
The company provides a complete range of ship repair, conversion and new-building services, which now also includes the development of offshore structures and fabrication of oil and gas modules.
