Milaha is expanding its ship repair capabilities with the acquisition of a new floating dock.

The new floating dock will be stationed at the Mesaieed Shipyard in the coming months and will be fully operational in the second half of this year.

The floating dock can accommodate vessels of 230 m in length and has a 30,000 tonne lifting capacity.

Milaha president and ceo Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai, said: “As per our plan announced in December 2018, Milaha’s shipyard is undergoing a major modernization program aiming to ensure future success by building on its past accomplishments and set the standards for a quality and safety oriented solution to the market and to Qatar.

“This will supplement our ship-repair and dry-docking activities. The dock will cater for all vessels from both local and international markets, and will be operational in the second half of this year.”

Milaha’s shipyard has repaired more than 8,000 vessels including for regional and international shipowners.
