Heesen builds 85m drydock

ADVERTISEMENT

Heesen Yachts began construction of an 85m drydock at its facility in Oss, the Netherlands. It is scheduled to be completed by October 2016 with the official inauguration on Nov. 11, 2016.

The new drydock will enable Heesen to build yachts up to 80m. It will be equipped with temperature and humidity control, heated floors, automatic sun tracker lights on the roof to reduce the use of power for lighting by 25 percent, and a high quality air filter system to provide optimal conditions for painting.

The new shed will be replacing two sheds built in 1995.
