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 production efficiency.

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 13m deep.

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 technological process.
