Dry dock services

When your vessel is in dry dock, it’s the perfect time for preventive maintenance, overhauls or upgrades. You have the opportunity to prepare and optimize for the long period at sea to follow, and Alfa Laval Marine Service can help you make the most of it. Plan for dry dock services with our experts and be ready when the vessel arrives.

Use your dry dock time efficiently

Alfa Laval has dry dock service centres close to major shipyards, all with highly trained personnel and uniform price packages for their services.

Although time in dry dock is limited, the right preparations mean you can achieve more in the time that you have. There are certain services we always recommend for major equipment, but a pre-docking inspection can identify additional or critical needs. That way, our service experts can recommend planned actions and be sure to have the right parts on hand.
