Drydocking Process 
 
A ship’s drydocking process requires both cautious planning and smooth execution. Prior to vessel’s arrival, dockmasters and designers take a series of drawings and certain calculations about the ship’s height, weight and structure. 
 
Arrival 
Required stability conditions have to be adhered to upon ship’s arrival at the drydocking port. Once the ship enters the drydock, it is moored to the dock and made secure. 
 
Washing 
High pressure washers are used to remove accumulated biofouling and dirt from the ship’s hull. 
 
Blasting 
Blasting is undertaken on the ship’s hull to prepare it for the application of paint. In this process old paint in the defective areas is removed entirely to expose the bare steel and make the surface smooth. 
 
Painting 
After blasting completion, the entire vessel is cleaned and required areas painted.Choosing the correct type of paint coating is important for the vessel’s efficiency and hull’s protection from corrosion. 
 
Necessary Repairs and Maintenance 
To speed up the process of ship repairs, various teams take the opportunity to carry out maintenance work on engines, pumps, tanks and cargo spaces as needed. Repairs on the rudder, propeller and shafting are made if any defects are identified. 
 
Departure 
Upon successful completion of all planned works, the dock is flooded and prepared for the vessel’s departure.
