Grand Bahama Shipyard is open for business

Grand Bahama Shipyard continues to operate in these challenging times.

With newly implemented practices to keep its customers and workforce safe, the yard commenced its summer drydocking program June 2 after a period of lockdown for COVID-19.

The first vessels were two Svitzer tugs followed by the double docking of a 29,433gt chemical tanker and a 1,097gt landing craft. The yard continues projects including dock surveys, in-water surveys, major fabrication and emergency repairs.

Five major cruise refits

As of today, this year the yard has completed more than 20 repair projects, including ballast water treatment system installations on three tankers and major refits of five cruise vessels.

The yard is preparing for a busy third and fourth quarters with repairs including scrubber installation, extensive propulsion repairs, ballast water system installations and routine class dockings across a range of vessels.
