Ship Repair

The Slipway, which has recently been upgraded, has four cradles and is located in Port Henry Harbour. Ships up to 27.43 metres keel length, with a maximum beam of 7.2 metres and weight of 230 tonnes can be accepted into the Slipway.

Ship repair facilities have been the subject of continued investment and improvement.

A new platform scheme was provided in 2010 to facilitate safer access & working on vessels on the Slipway.

The Slipway provides a very cost effective alternative to the Syncrolift facility and is widely used.

The Drydock is located in the North Harbour and can currently handle ships up to 57.9 metres in length, 10.67 metres beam and 5 metres draught and is available to all types of vessels within the dimensions.
