Colombo Dockyard Offers Brochure On Facilities And Capabilities

Colombo Dockyard (Pte) Ltd.

(CDL) of Colombo, Sri Lanka, is offering a new 12-page full-color brochure on the yard's facilities and capabilities.

The text of the brochure points out that Colombo is in an ideal location, situated at the intersection of sea lanes to the east from the Mediterranean, the Gulf, east coast of Africa, west coast of the Indian subcontinent and the sea lanes to the west from the Bay of Bengal, Australia and the Far East. The shipyard is located inside the Port of Colombo, enabling repairs to be carried out conveniently while discharging cargo or at anchorage during all seasons.

CDL, after heavy investment and comprehensive modernization of ship repair facilities and workshops, is now equipped to offer competitive prices for docking of all ships up to 30,000 dwt, maintenance and repair work, conversions, and newbuilding of smaller ships.

The normal capacity, length, width, height over blocks, and cranage are given for Colombo's three graving docks which are capable of handling vessels up to 30,000 dwt. A 100,000-dwt graving dock is now under construction and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 1985.

The many types of repair and services offered by the yard are listed and explained in the brochure, and the names and addresses are given of representatives of CDL in England, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, USA, West Germany and the Netherlands.

An outline map of Sri Lanka is included in the back of the publication, showing the location of the Colombo Dockyard. The map is centered over photos that illustrate the varied and interesting attractions the island has to offer.
