SLOPS & DE-MUCKING FACILITIES.
The Authorities in China are beginning to make slops/sludge and de-mucking works more complicated for especially large tanker owners planning to dry dock their tankers.
Fujian Huadong is the ONLY shipyard in China where Tank owners can moor their ships alongside the shipyards quay and start immediately to remove slops/sludge as well as start de-mucking the ships tanks. The shipyard operates its own station with up to 2.700 m3 capacity.
Tank owners with ships up to VLCC, saves a lot of money and time by dry docking their vessels together with us in addition to receive professional assistance during the dry docking. No need to first bring the ship to a 3rd party slop station with extra costs for Pilots, tugs, additional shifting etc for thereafter proceed to a shipyard which perhaps is located 6-10 hrs away from the slop station.
At Fujian Huadong the ship owners can proceed directly to the slop station/quay in order for the shipyard to start the removal in addition/simultaneously start works perhaps on the Main Engine, mark steel works etc.
