Dockyard sets up new Afloat Repair Unit
Colombo Dockyard PLC, (CDPLC) has already placed in motion the
necessary ground work to set up a new unit to handle the afloat repairs
that call Colombo.
The services provided by this unit will fill the gap of professional
afloat repairs required by many international callers touching many
ports of Sri Lanka, mainly Colombo.
The aim of this strategy is to facilitate professional afloat repairs
with minimal down time at reasonable price. Dockyard has already started
discussions with globally represented marine service providers to
partner with CDPLC to provide the best afloat repairs in the region.
Service providers such as Wartsila, Man B&W, Yanmar, ABB, Cummins,
Aquamaster, Caterpillar and Hydrex are expected to be sourced when
providing the final service to the client.
The value proposition in this equation will be to offer a superior
afloat repair package that is world class and fast at one of the most
strategic locations in the marine map.

This strategic decision to move aggressively into this untapped
