Appledore Gets $2-Million Order

To Design Shipyard For Dome

To Build Arctic Vessels

A & P Appledore, Canada Ltd., a member of the A & P Appledore Group, has been awarded a $2-million (Canadian) contract by

Dome Petroleum Limited of Calgary, to de- sign a shipyard capable of building large arctic vessels, including Arctic VLCCs up to 200,000 dwt.

A & P Appledore's involvement in Dome's new shipbuilding facilities include: site in- vestigation, project scheduling, shipyard lay- out design, shipyard equipment engineering, manpower and management planning, con- ceptual ship design, and design for produc- tion.

The proposed shipyard will possess the highest steelwork manufacturing technology to meet the specific needs of Arctic-class vessels. The envisaged steel throughput will be approaching 100,000 tons yearly.

The shipyard design will possess the flex- ibility to construct a mix of vessel types ranging from conventional ships to the fab- rication of offshore modules. It is estimated that this shipyard will be completed and in production by the middle of 1984. The yard will have over double the capacity of any existing yard in Canada, and could well be the largest in North America in terms of yearly steel throughput.

A & P Appledore is also actively involved in plans for modernization and possible ex- pansion of Davie Shipyard in Lauzon, near
