Namdock, a massive 11 500 tonne floating dock now in service at the port of Walvis Bay, has placed Namibia on the world map as a location where oil tankers and ships can be repaired.

The first dock of its type along the treacherous southern west coastline, Namdock will be of significant benefit to vessels operating in the area and to those plying Africa's rugged southern west coastline. Namdock was acquired in a joint venture involving the ship repair company, Elgin Brown & Hamer Namibia (Pty) Ltd, and the Namibian Ports Authority, NamPort.

Namdock is identical to Eldock, the Elgin Brown & Hamer Group's highly successful Durban-based floating dock - the first privately owned floating dock in South Africa.

Namdock comprises a concrete pontoon flanked by two steel walls and has the capacity to lift vessels of up to 160 metres long and 23,5 metres wide, with a weight of up to 8 500 tonnes. It has the same advanced multiple lifting system as that was developed by Elgin for Eldock
