Colombo Dockyard resumes operations with regulatory health guidelines
Colombo Dockyard PLC (CDL), Sri Lanka 's leading shipbuilder, resumed shipyard operations on November 1, giving the highest priority to regulatory health guidelines in order to redeliver the ongoing projects as early as possible.
The management has taken aggressive steps to carry out the yard team's nearly 2,000 PCR screening to date and positive cases are being dealt with while the first contacts have been quarantined and the situation is being diligently tackled in collaboration with the authorities.
As the leading ship repair and shipbuilding entity in South Asia, with a worldwide reputation and a well-established clientele from Asia to Europe, it is vital that shipyard yard operations continue safely and steadily to live up to its reputation as a reliable and trustworthy market player.
In this sense, under the health guidelines stipulated by the authorities, shipyard operations began on 1 November.
“This process will be reviewed for any further improvements as the operation continues and numbers will be increased to meet the production requirements,” the company stated.
Ship repair and shipbuilding teams are housed in special quarters (hotels), and those undergoing health screening and cleaning are shuttled to the shipyard to resume operations.
