The new facility is phase 4A of an ongoing development by international construction group, Eversendai Corporation at Nakilat Ship Repair Yard, Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar. The super yacht hall is being built for the final outfitting and painting of super yacht hulls as well as for refitting and upgrading super yachts and naval vessels.
Jewers Doors has installed two of its Esavian doors totalling 45.1m high and 69.9m wide. Each door weighs 68 tonnes and three giant cranes where used in the lifting process. Although these are by far the tallest doors Jewers Doors has built and may well be some of the largest sliding doors in the world, in terms of area they are actually smaller than the 582m by 25.85m doors supplied for the Royal Airwing hangar at Dubai International Airport.
Esavian Director, Jonathan Jewers, says: "There is definitely a trend towards larger and larger buildings, especially in the aircraft and shipping maintenance and repair sectors. Just a few years ago we were supplying doors 21 metres high and 100 metres wide for aircraft hangars and now dimensions of 28 metres and 240 metres (sometimes multiples of these) are quite common. Together with the increase in size, our Esavian doors now have sophisticated safety and control mechanisms and class-leading 'green' features."
