The Grand Bahama Shipyard has dry-docked its first vessel since reopening the shipyard shortly after Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas in September.

Taipei Trader, a 9,932-ton containership operated by Lomar Shipping Limited, docked at the No. 3 dock earlier this week, marking a major step in the return of normal operations to the shipyard.

The vessel first docked at the yard on August 25 for a routine program including propulsion and thruster maintenance, and preparation of the hull for protective coating application. On August 30, in accordance with the shipyard’s hurricane procedures, the vessel had to be undocked and depart the shipyard due to the projected path of Hurricane Dorian.

Following the return and docking of Taipei Trader, Grand Bahama Shipyard resumed maintenance work and repairs on the ship, which are expected to be completed in October.

In mid-September, the shipyard welcomed the return of the 57,062-ton Agathonissos owned by Greece-based Eletson, which is currently at the pier completing repair work started prior to the storm.

Planning remains on track for the next cruise ship dry-dock at the shipyard, Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Ecstasy, on October 5.
