Grand Bahama Shipyard Announces Infrastructure Improvements

Grand Bahama Shipyard

Grand Bahama Shipyard Limited (GBSL) announced that significant maintenance programs were competed on Floating Dry Dock #1 and Floating Dry Dock #2. Maintenance to Dry Dock #3 is due for completion by December 2016.

The yard said mechanical and steel workshops have been updated and reconfigured to accommodate new equipment purchased to enhance efficiency, thereby giving the yard the ability to offer more services in-house.

“We are dedicated to staying current with the technological developments of the industry, focusing on the specific needs of our customers. We listen to what they have to say and are committed to meeting those demands with continual upgrades to our yard and service,” said Graham Couser, vice president of sales and marketing.

It will be a busy second half of the year for the yard’s cruise ship repair business, which just drydocked the MSC Divina and expects ships from Carnival, Norwegian, Disney, Princess and Silversea.

Studies to improve to improve work flow have been conducted resulting in process management systems being reviewed. New systems are being evaluated to improve work flow through an updated process management protocol, said a statement.
