Customisable Dry Dock Management Solution


Survitec’s global cruise team is dedicated to bringing the industry’s most advanced solutions to market, and our dry dock management offering is no exception. Designed specifically for owners and operators of passenger vessels, we recognise that all operator needs are different; we have therefore designed a dry dock management solution that is fully customisable.

There are many things to consider when arranging a vessel dry-docking requirements including; location, quality, timescales, cost, service scope as outlined by the flag and class approval authority, and where applicable, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).  In addition, the many items of products and spare parts that need to be purchased must be considered, which can often result in needing to use multiple suppliers.  

As a complete safety solutions provider, we will work to oversee your full safety requirement, eliminating the need to use multiple suppliers, significantly reducing the complexity behind the dry dock. Survitec actions this through proven processes, tight controls, good preparation, and close supervision; overall ensuring exceptional results. To help make this process as easy and efficient as possible, we also offer a dedicated project manager, who will ensure that your dry dock is managed effectively and delivered on time.

The Requirement

For passenger vessels, the inspection of the ship’s bottom is required annually. Two of such inspections in a period of five years must be carried in dry dock, and the maximum interval between these inspections should be 3 years for vessels older than 15 years. Newer vessels may attend dry dock once every 5 years.


Trusted expertise along the way

Start to finish, Survitec holds your dry dock project to the highest standards, to ensure added value, and provide an unparallel customer service experience. To keep communication simple, your project manager will be your go-to source for all questions related to servicing, scheduling, finance, and follow-up. Once we define your specific needs for the vessel(s), we will map out a strategic scope of work and concise project plan. The process looks like this:
