On 3 October at Kherson state plant “Pallada” the floating composite dock “ERENEOS” (7,100 TLC) was launched from dry dock.
After carrying out of tests the floating dock will be towed to Cyprus to port Limassol for servicing of ships for shelf development of Mediterranean Sea.
The pontoon of the dock is made from heavy marine reinforced concrete on sulfate-resistant Portland cement, and wing-walls are made from shipbuilding steel. This combination of materials allows lowering operational costs by 2-2.5 times in comparison to similar steel docks.
The floating dock was designed by the design bureau of “Pallada” in accordance under the supervision of the American Bureau of Shipping.
