Dry-docking projects, both intermediate & special surveys, need to be efficiently managed to safeguard the interests of the ship owners, bareboat charterers, and investors (financiers & banks).
The process of dry-docking refers to when a vessel is taken to the service yard and brought to dry land so that submerged portions of the hull can be cleaned and inspected. This work is both preventative as well as a regulatory requirement within the industry. Ships are dry-docked once in 5 years whereas ships older than 15 years are dry-docked once in 3 years.
Dry docking levitates risk reduction, cost-saving, and alternative options, only if it is managed under expertise like Sinotech. The whole of the ship is docked on dry land and then it is used to check, service, and inspect the submerged portion of the ship, which has been in the water for years. This method of Ship Dry-Docking involves objective identification. The shareholder assignation, inclusive description, and project completions are the key processes for the identification of the objective.
