Located in Port Moresby, the capital city of Papua New Guinea, the PNG Dockyard is close to local service infrastructure including an international airport with daily flights to Australia and four flights a week to Asia, highway access and all-year deep water approaches through Fairfax Harbour.
The Dockyard boasts a slipway with 5,000 tonne lifting capacity by wedge-car for vessels of 130 meters length and 25 meter beam.
A state-of-the-art ship transfer system allows nine vessels to be serviced at one time. Multiple cranes for heavy-duty lifts, 150 meter repair wharf and a 100 meter lay-up berth provide watering, fuelling services and repairs.
Underground service bays provide full reticulation of fresh and salt water, power and compressed air to each maintenance berth.
The shipyard operates a fully equipped machine and electrical shop and fabrication, welding, painting and marine architect divisions.
The Dockyard handles emergency dockings 24-7, coordinates in-house logistical support by air and sea and provides on-site security personnel as well as crew accommodation and mess facilities.
