Asry experienced a high demand for dry-docking and specialist services during the third quarter of 2002, continuing the trend set during the first half of the year. In all some five ULCCs/VLCCs were docked at the yard during the third quarter.
August saw little let up in the demand for

Steelwork repairs and renewals were high, totaling some 2,700 tons, which brings the year's total to date to 6,109 tons.

Giant bridge piece hauled up into place.
2002 September 21


A HUGE structural steel bridge was erected for the Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa Causeway yesterday.
The 404-metre, 2,000 tonne arch was lifted as a single unit and construction workers began welding it into place.
The work is expected to continue for two weeks.
Once completed the causeway will link Muharraq and Juffair.
The new bridge will be the major overwater connection of the 6.4-kilometre causeway.
It was built by Dubai-based Cleveland Bridge and Engineering in its Jebel Ali plant, then shipped piece by piece to Bahrain.
"The steel fabrication work of the bridge that we have done is about one third of the total BD14.5 million project cost," said managing director Michael Mack.
"It took more than eight months to build and fabricate the bridge."
Steel beams on the approach at both the Hidd and Juffair abutments were completed earlier this summer.
"The main arch span is 121 meters long and 40m wide, and rises to a height of 26m," he continued. "However, these will eventually function as three-lane carriageways," he noted. The main navigation span will have a high water spring tide level of 15.4m and a horizontal clearance of 115m.

"The main span is a bowstring arch structure with two pairs of arches, one on either side of the deck, each supporting a longitude tie member suspended by hangers," continued Mr. Al Kalali.
"Between these tie members spans transverse steel girders."
Mr. Al Kalali said a reinforced concrete top slab would form the deck. The causeway is expected open in November next year.
It is a joint venture between the Haji Hassan Group and Six Construct.
Project consultant is Hyder Consulting.
