Dry dock no. 10 of Marseille Port, the biggest dock in the Mediterranean area and one of the biggest in the world, becomes fully operational and ready to welcome the first ships already from next week. Operated by Chantier Naval de Marseille (CNdM), dock no. 10 is ready to accommodate all types of naval vessels, including those exceeding 270 metres of length, thanks to its 465 metres in length and 85 metres in width.
Operations in dock no. 10 will start next Monday with the maintenance schedule for an MSC cruise ship which will be followed by two Costa ships at the end of November, beginning of December.
With the new facility, the shipyard will be able to position itself and the port of Marseille as a state of the art location for all ship-owners and cruise ships, tankers, cargo ships, RO/RO, container ships and offshore platforms will all be able to benefit from the extensive expertise and state of the art technologies of the yard. About 10 million euro investments have been planned to increase the shipyardâ€™s efficiency.
