PRELIMINARY DESIGN REPORT - MINI-DRYDOCK FOR VERY LARGE CRUDE-CARRYING SHIPS

This report presents a preliminary design of a mini-drydock which can be used for servicing Very Large Crude-Carriers (VLCC's). The mini-drydock would be especially useful in servicing VLCC's since the number of conventional drydocks large enough to service them is limited. To reduce time lost during standard drydocking, the concept of mini-drydocking, which would enable inspection and maintenance of underwater portions of the ship (while it is docked for loading and unloading), is being suggested as feasible.
