The shipyard owns six floating docks and two semi-submersible barges for docking offshore platforms and other heavy objects. The barges have lifting capacity of up to 24.000 and 25.000 tonnes respectively.

The ships up to 297m long and 44,04m wide can be dry-docked at the yard, although for repaires not requiring docking even larger ships – up to 300m of LOA can moore at the shipyard’s 6.000m quayside, over half of which is fully equipped with cranage and media facilities.
