Dry dock II at the Papenburger Meyer shipyard was recently extended in a record time and at an expense of millions. The basin, which already measured a gigantic 350 m in length, was to be extended by 120 m, thus making it the largest roofed dry dock in the world. Several Schwing truck-mounted concrete pumps were in action for the pouring of the concrete dock base, which is around 2.70 m thick and will support giant ocean liners.
