Pipavav Shipyard Limited is now been formally renamed as "Pipavav Defence and Offshore Engineering Company Limited"
Pipavav Shipyard Limited (PSL) is a testimony to the vision and active participation of the private sector in India’s quest to become a major player in the global maritime industry.
Covering over 200 hectares with approximately 720 m of sea front and 685 m of outfit quay, PSL is the largest shipyard in India. It has one of the largest drydock in the world. Two Goliath cranes of 600 T capacity each, which service the drydock and the adjoining pre-erection berth, enabling PSL to handle up to 1200 T pre-outfitted ship blocks. A host of other technologically advanced infrastructure and use of modern shipbuilding processes, including modular construction and line heating technique, make PSL one of the most modern shipyards in the world.
The Pipavav Shipyard originally consisted of two wet basins – one approximately 680 meters long and 65 meters wide, and the other approximately 680 meters long and 60 meters wide.
The first of these has been converted into a dry dock measuring 662 meters longs, and 65 meters wide.
Two Goliath cranes with a span of 150 meters & height of 175 meters together capable of handling up to 1200 Ton block, and two Level Luffing cranes are erected to service this dry dock.
To facilitate afloat fit-out and commissioning of ships, including afloat repairs, a 300–meter long quay, with the capacity for berthing on both sides, has been constructed with adequate draft and serviced by a Level Luffing crane.
