Dutch superyacht builder Oceanco to open new facilities

Oceanco is expanding its facilities dramatically to keep up with market demand for the largest superyachts.

The Dutch superyacht builder is expanding its facilities with a new dry dock with shed to accommodate yachts of up to 140 metres in length, over land measuring 62,000 sqm.

The project involved investigating the land for World War II explosives, since the area was heavily bombed during the war. Construction work for the dry dock started on 11 March 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2014.

The 33m-high building and dry dock, built of concrete and heavily insulated with integrated thermal and cooling systems, will be virtually impervious to outside weather and ground water temperatures.

The dry dock offers flexible uses as it can be divided in several compartments by using segmented doors while there will be a variety of cranes, one with a 100-tonne capacity.
