Dragados Offshore’s Cádiz yard opened in 1975, and serves as our headquarters. The facility is located on the Atlantic Coast, adjacent to the historic city of Cádiz and 100 km from the Strait of Gibraltar. In 2003 and in 2009 the yard underwent major renovations, which included new offices for our clients and personnel, new warehouses, workshops, and lay-down areas, and a deep-water quay, that make the yard one of the most modern in Europe.
The yard is equipped with a total of 22 covered fabrication workshops, including specialized fabrication workshops for piping, sandblasting, and painting. The yard storage areas have more than 86,000 m2 of space; the quayside connects directly with the open sea through a shipping channel, 500 m wide, 4 km long, and dredged to -12 m L.A.T.
