The Durban Port is said to be one of the largest and most busy shipping terminals on the African continent. Being strategically placed on major international shipping routes, Durban’s Harbour is South Africa’s main container port handling up to 31.4 million tons of cargo each year.

DORMAC’s yard is situated within the heart of the Ship Repair zone within the Port and less than 500m from the Dry Dock. The yard was founded in 1903 and has a proud history of constructing more than 108 vessels!

DORMAC’s placement in such a prestigious port, along with their professionalism, highly trained engineers and technicians as well as their determination, gives them the ability to provide their clients with effective and efficient services in all matters.
