The Geoje Shipyard Boasts the World's
Greatest Dock Turnover Rate
The dock turnover rate is the number of ships
that a dock can launch ships. The greater the
turnover rate indicates the more
sophisticated shipbuilding capacity and
In addition, dock turnover rate is the most
reliable yardstick for measuring shipyard’s
technical capacity and production efficiency.
The largest dock at SHI’s Geoje Shipyard,
Dock No.3,is 640m long, 97.5m wide, and
Mostly ultra-large container ships, LNG
carriers and LNG-FPSO are built at this dock,
which boasts the world’s greatest production
efficiency by having the yearly dock turnover
rate of 10 and the launch of 30 ships per year.
The turnover rate of 10 is a very valuable
result that has been achieved through the
SHI’s scientific and fundamental approach to
building, such as making large-sized ship
blocks, shortening the main engine loading
period and efficiently utilizing facility space by
using ultra large-sized cranes.
Geoje Shipyard is highly praised for
overcoming the limits of shipbuilding capacity
due to limitations in facilities based on its
The First Shipyard Certified by the World's Three
Most Recognized International Standards as well as ISO50001
Geoje Shipyard is the first shipyard certified by the world’s three highly recognized
international standards; ISO 9001(Management Quality), ISO14001(Environment
