Ship servicing boosted by $64 million floating dock

A $64m floating dry dock that could lift vessels of up to 12,000 tonnes would be built in WA, the State Government said yesterday.

Vessels lifted by the floating dry dock also could be towed on to land, Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan said.

Strategic Marine would build the dock at the Australian Marine Complex at Henderson and planned to complete it by October 2009.
