Dry Dock Design for Biblia Marine Towing and Transportation


JMS Naval Architects is designing a 500-ton lift capacity floating dry dock for Biblia Marine Towing and Transportation of Savannah, GA. With their fleet of tugs and barges, Biblia has provided bed-leveling, agitation dredging, and dragging services for decades in the waters of Savannah, Delaware Bay, Charleston Harbor, Fernandina, and Jacksonville. Biblia will use the dry dock to service their own tugboats and offer similar repair and maintenance services to other vessel owners in the area from their Savannah River facilities.


The new dry dock, which will replace Biblia’s existing dry dock, is 120’ long, 60’ wide, has a 6’ deep pontoon, and 14’ tall wing walls. The dock will primarily be used for hauling tug boats with a maximum length of 120 feet and maximum draft of 10 feet. The dry dock design incorporates a shore power connection, onboard generator, individual pumps, and one end of the dry dock is raked to improve towing. JMS will provide a complete design package that meets the requirements of the ABS Rules for Building and Classing Steel Floating Dry Docks.


JMS is developing a complete engineering and design package, including all detail structural design, tankage, and outfitting design. Systems design will include the ballast system, seachest arrangement, equipment specification, and pump and discharge piping systems. JMS is also designing the power system including generator arrangement, fuel tank arrangement, and electrical and piping system one-lines.


In 2019, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced $19.6 million in grants in to support improvements at 28 small shipyards across the U.S. Of that total, $1.3 million will help fund upgrades and expansions at Biblia, including the design and construction of their new 500-ton floating dry dock.
