KANAGAWA SHIP REPAIR YARD REFERENCE introducing a timely solution to ship repairs.

Hitachi Zosen is reinforcing its repair facilities to give you even faster service. In July, we're opening a new 60,000 DWT graving dock at our Kanagawa Shipyard, located in the Tokyo/Yokohama


With a 235m length, a 37m width, and two traveling jib cranes (45 tons and 25 tons capacity), this new dock can handle any

Panamax-size vessels. And because it has a maximum draft of 8m, with a depth of 12m, it can even accommodate container carriers in a half-loaded condition.

These new facilities are also robot-operated for higher speeds.

Automated facilities include: 1) automated docking-in/out 2) four closed-circuit blasters 3) four high-pressure hull washers and 4) two multi-nozzle painting devices for applying a uniform paint thickness.

Man-power saving facilities are also a feature of our new dock

They include 1) hydro-electric driven power/water/air/ gas supply tower on a self-turning boom system and 2) two embarkation/disembarkation towers on each side of the dock.

In addition, the dock also has an automated keel, and side blocks with height adjustable to 350mm to match carriers' bottom shapes.

So when you need ship repairs, remember

Hitachi Zosen's new automated repair yard.

When your ship comes in, we'll get it back out. Fast. TOKYO KANAGAWA (YOKOHAMA) t?
