Atlantic Marine Acquires Floating Drydock With 225,000-DWT Lift Capacity
Atlantic Marine, Inc., Mobile, Ala., recently purchased a floating drydock for use at its Mobile, Ala., shipyard, with a capability to lift ships up to 225,000 deadweight tons.
The drydock is being prepared for tow and it is expected to enter the Port of Mobile in mid-winter. It is anticipated to become fully operational in Mobile in early spring.
This new drydock, formerly the Big T owned by Todd Shipyards, will enable Atlantic Marine to drydock significantly larger ships than at present at its Mobile shipyard. The new drydock has an 853-foot length and 164-foot clear inside width. The new dock will complement the existing Atlantic Marine drydock, which is capable of lifting ships up to about 40,000 dwt.
Atlantic Marine has been in operation in Mobile at the former ADDSCO facilities on Pinto Island for slightly less than two years. During that time the company has shown steady growth. This new drydock significantly increases the yard's capabilities. For free literature detailing the Atlantic Marine's facilities and capabilities,
