Ukroboronprom’s Kherson State Plant, Pallada launched the newest composite autonomous floating dock with a carrying capacity of 7100 tons.
After launching, specialists of Palada plant will conduct a full test cycle, after which the dock will undergo American Bureau of Shipping certification for the first time in the history of Ukrainian shipbuilding industry and the Bureau.
In the near future, the dock will be transferred to the customer – "Multimarine Shipyards Ltd", which plans to operate the dock at Cyprus Limassol port.
The length of the deck is 120 meters, immersion depth is 12.2 meters. The hull will be made from heavy marine concrete, and its conning towers – from ship steel. This combination of materials allows reducing the operating costs of the dock by 2-2.5 times, compared to similar steel docks.
The dock was laid in September 2016.
