Shipyard construction, Turkmenistan
Port development in Turkmenbashi

This new shipyard (430 m x 350 m) on the Caspian Sea, on the edge of the seaport of the city of Turkmenbashi, has a total area of 15 hectares. The water depth at the quay is 7.5 m, and the size of the design ship for which it was built (LxWxH) is 150 x 18 x 6.5 m. Working together with the engineering company Ingenieurtechnik & Maschinenbau GmbH (IMG), Inros Lackner took the lead in the planning and design of the shipyard and in providing consultancy services to the client. The ready-for-use facility was built on a greenfield site, designed from the initial concept, by way of numerous varied structural and infrastructure solutions, to the final equipment details – and the construction monitored. As well as being used to build and repair ships, the facility will also serve to support the offshore industry.

The following production focal points and shipyard work processes were considered:

  • Storage areas for fabrication materials and leftovers
  • Production workshops
  • Facilities for finishing / component manufacture
  • Areas for ship repairs and shipbuilding works on the shipyard premises / for final assembly
  • Areas for ship repair works at the fitting-out quay / for final assembly
  • Social facilities and buildings for personnel / administration
  • Incoming materials receiving areas
