"Sagami", a floating dock newly built for IHI's own use in view of the shortage of repair docks in Japan, is now in operation at the site of IHI's Yokohama Shipyard. Being the "solid type" floating dock first constructed in Japan, she is moored at the site by the sliding guide type mooring equipment which was developed by IHI for use with "Sagami" for the purpose of ensuring safety and reliability in mooring under difficult conditions, especially in typhoon weather. Beside the above, she has many other unique points: two main lines of ballast water piping with two large dewatering pumps are installed on the basis of our extensive experience in the designing of super tankers, which enables her to operate quite easily and speedily; moreover, a complete drainage water cleaning system is adopted. Namely, in addition to the ordinary sewage system for drainage from showers and W.C.s, IHI-CHEMAP funda filter is provided to treat dock bilge water including 5,000 tons of water discharged from a drydocked ship. She is further modernized with powered equipment such as air-operated bilge blocks, painting stages of both sides, ship position fixing system, hydro-jet cleaning system and so on.
