Vuyk developed this floating dock specially for vessels up to Panamax size. It is developed as part of a modular design, so the main particulars can be adjusted, depending on specific requirements and operating areas as specified by clients. For unsupported areas, this design can be upgraded to a self-supporting floating dock. This involves adjustments with respect to power supply, storage capacity and accommodation spaces in the side wings.
