Altair: Dry Docking & Ship Repairs

Ships these days cost millions of dollars to build and then occasionally, like everything else on the planet, they require maintenance too. This maintenance happens in dry dock.

What’s Dry docking anyway?

Drydocking is when a ship is taken out of the water completely to access those parts which are usually underwater. The dry dock is a structured area wherein construction, repairs and maintenance of merchant vehicles are carried out.


SOLAS survey

At Altair, our unique construction arrangement allows water to be filled up in an area so that vessels can be maneuvered comfortably in and out of the area.

As per Safety of Life at Sea, or SOLAS requirements, all merchant vessels require a complete survey of the hull in a dry dock twice within a five year period and intermediate survey within 36 months.

This includes maintenance of:

  • Hull
  • Propeller
  • Rudder
  • Other parts of the ship immersed in water
