Pictou Industries Completes Third Enlargement Of Crandall R a i l w a y Drydock

The 2,000-ton-capacity Crandall railway drydock built in 1942 in Pictou Harbor at Pictou, Nova Scotia, for the Canadian Naval Service has now been enlarged to 3,000-tonscapacity at Pictou Industries Limited.

This is the third enlargement of the railway drydock, all of which were designed by Crandall Dry Dock Engineers, Inc. The Pictou shipyard played an important part in much of the steel fabrication and equipment installation. The facility is currently under the management of Canadian Shipbuilding and Engineering Limited, who also manage facilities at Thunder Bay and Port Weller Dry Dock on the Great Lakes.

According to Crandall Dry Dock Engineers, if a railway drydock is initially well designed it not only allows security and longevity of drydocking operations but also allows capacity expansion at considerably less expense. Rebuilding and expansion of facilities by Crandall have recently been successfully completed in Halifax/Dartmouth, Lunenburg and North Sydney, Nova Scotia, and in Jacksonville, Fla.
