Vietnam Shipbuilding Company
Strategic Marine's impressive 127,900m2 facility at the Dong Xuyen Industrial Zone in South Vietnam was purchased in 2007, and has nearly 20,000sqm of workshop and machinery shop space.
The facility, which employs more than 1070 staff including fabricators, welders, production staff, supervisors and management, is fully equipped to produce sizeable steel and aluminium vessels. In addition, the facility also supports a significant number of local sub contracted workers and skilled tradespeople depending on project demand.
There are five main fabrication workshops covering an area of 12,000m2 in addition to a 2,000m2 paint-shop, a 2,400m2 secure stores area, a 2,000m2 machinery shop, and another five 2500m2 multi -purpose workspaces.
This shipyard in Vietnam has installed three slipways measuring 137m x 36m, 177m x 36m, and 142m x 60m. These are adjacent to a heavy fabrication area of 30,000m2 and fitted with bollard points, a recently upgraded power supply. Installation of a reticulated gas system extending from workshop to slipway is also currently in progress.
The yard is fully equipped with seven ten tonne overhead gantry cranes, four crawler cranes with a capacity to lift 50-200 tonnes, a 10 tonne "A" frame crane, a CNC plasma cutting machine and steel mechanical cutting and hydraulic rolling machines.
With significant additional space for future developments and a 250m seafront area, Strategic Marine Vietnam is currently planning the addition of a larger fabrication workshop measuring 3500m2 as well as permanent office and client site facilities.
Construction is underway of the sites pontoon jetty system, which will be installed along with four 200 tonne capacity bollards at the slipway base. The pontoon system at completion will measure 2200m2 of workable deck space with a 100 tonne bearing capacity.
This installation will provide Strategic Marine along-side facilities enabling the expansion of our refit/refurbishment division which has already commenced operations in Vietnam. The shipyard is currently the site base for a successful mobile refitting team with the proven capability to deliver refit and refurbishment services to offshore clients in the regional oil and gas industry.
