Ranked among the biggest ship repair yards in the world.
Oman's first ship repair yard is the centerpiece of the integrated Duqm Port and Drydock Complex on the Al Wusta coast. Under a 10 year agreement, signed in 2006, South Korea’s DSME, one of the world's top shipbuilders, oversaw the development of this ship repair yard on behalf of state-owned ODC.
When ODC launched its soft operations in April 2011, ODC's dry dock was ranked among the biggest ship repair yards in the world equipped to handle some of the largest vessels in service today, including Ultra Large Crude Carriers (ULCCs) of up to 600,000 deadweight tons (DWT) capacity.
So far, ODC has already dry docked a number of large tankers and OBO carriers, including the conversion of two of the world’s largest Ore carriers to become VLCC for Greece’s Springfield Shipping And A Number of LNG tankers, including the Muscat LNG from Oman Shipping.
Apart from the world’s large tanker fleet, ODC also has the ability to accommodate all other types of ships including containerships, bulk carriers, Afrramax, Suezmax and smaller tankers, chemical tankers, general cargo vessels, dredgers etc..
The two graving docks also have the dimensions to drydock jack-up rigs from the offshore oil and gas industry
