Shipbuilding - Ocean Shipyard


Building of vessels is carried out in two production lines – big-tonnage and small-tonnage lines.

Big-tonnage production line includes: assembly-welding workshop, dry dock (354х60х17m) with pre-dock area (49х227m), equipped by two gantry cranes with lifting capacity of 320 tons each (lifting capacity in pair is 570 tons) and 4 bridge cranes (of 80 tons each), outfitting quay №1 with the length of 420 m equipped by two bridge cranes (with lifting capacity of 32 tons each).

Small-tonnage production line consists of assembly-welding workshop, boathouse (144х16m), two open slipways, floating dock and 255-meters quay №2 (with two cranes of lifting capacity of 10 and 15 tons). Floating dock PD-35 with lifting capacity up to 6000 tons is used for launching the vessels and ship repair works and is equipped by two cranes with lifting capacity of 5 tons each. The biggest vessel launched via the floating dock has the following dimensions: the length – 150 m, the width – 22 m. The floating dock is equipped with an automatic tipping system.

Ukraine’s largest dry dock allows the construction of Panamax, Aframax, Suez-Max vessels (deadweight up to 300,000 tons, length up to 320 m, width up to 50 m).

The advantage of the Ocean dry dock is a unique anteroom of more than 35,000 square meters. The availability of such an area makes it possible to carry out intermediate work quickly and qualitatively at the stage of section assembly and consolidation of sections for further joining of sections in a dry dock.

An option to install a dry dock shutter is also available. It divides the dock into flooded and dry parts in different proportions (4 combinations available) and allows two or more vessels to work simultaneously if construction and repair cycles differ.

Boathouse can also be used for bookmarking and building ships up to 5,500 tonnes.


The dry dock, boathouse and floating dock are in full working order and are staffed by professional teams of ships of all necessary specialties.

Since 1951, more than 400 vessels of various types have been built at the Ocean’s facilities, and today the plant is restoring the potential to restore full-scale industrial shipbuilding.

Technologies and equipment meet the modern requirements. Producing the hulls of the vessels is carried out by integral block method with shortening of slipway and dock periods for 2-3 months. Sections and blocks are outfitted by maximum with the pipe-lines, electrical and hull equipment and then are painted without the last layer until they are assembled in blocks (or hull).

The range of products is aimed at the construction of such vessels as container ships, ice class tugboats, chemical tankers, dry cargo, inland water tankers, tugboats, multi-purpose cargo vessels, multi-purpose cargo vessels for heavy cargo transportation, multifunctional cargo vessels, multifunctional cargo vessels etc..
