Hyundai Heavy completes world-first FPSO drydock

Seoul:  Hyundai Heavy Industries has announced that it has completed work on the world's first dedicated drydock for floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. The global shipbuilding leader said the new "H dock" would be the single largest drydock in the world at 490 meters long, 115 meters across and 13.5 meters deep.
The Ulsan-based company added it will be used to build ships of up to 1 million tons. The first FPSO ship to be built at the new dock will be the USAN EPSO ordered by ELF Petroleum Nigeria Ltd in February 2008. [07/04/09]
