The first dedicated ship repair yard for medium to large ships in the South Atlantic basin will begin construction in 2019 in Lucena, on the coast of Brazil’s northeast state of Paraiba, according to a MarineLink shipping news report.

The billion-dollar Brazil Basin Drydock Co. project will be led by McQuilling Services, the New York-based marine transport consulting and advisory group of McQuilling Partners Inc.

The facility, which will feature two dry docks and a Hydro-lift system, will be located at the mouth of the Paraíba River, within the harbor of Port of Cabedelo, according to David Saginaw, BBDC project director in New York. It is expected to open in 2021, Saginaw said.
