One of the world's largest drydocks built in the early 1970s was remodelled to cater for the new commercial market of floating production systems in the North Sea.
Disused since 1987 due to high running costs and loss of markets, works began in 1995 to build a 240m quay wall for floating production systems to be moored against.
Refurbishment and renewal of mechanical and electrical services and the dockgate has led to quicker dewatering to reduce dock cycling time from 10 to three days.
