Alcock Ashdown Gujarat
Chanch Yard:

The Chanch Shipyard is set to catapult into an ultra modern phase of our legacy business as Chanch shipyard develops to cater to the emerging opportunities of shipbuilding in India and importantly to accommodate state’s objective of raising a Ship Building hub. The shipyard is in close proximity to the Pipavav Port, which is owned by and managed by APM Terminals on the west coast of Gujarat, emerging as an important gateway port for containers, bulk and liquid cargo.

With this shipyard ready to launch its first big vessel, and with a totally revamped and modern design cell in place, the company is all set to compete globally. At present, Chanch is shaping an avant-garde passenger ship, biggest ever to have been built in Gujarat; the eight-deck ship is meant for some 400 passengers and 50 tones of cargo, and is being built for the Andaman & Nicobar Islands administration.


Chanch is unveiling a new market for Alcock Ashdown for building world-class, sophisticated passenger vessels, Tankers and product carriers etc. and the yard is ultimately emerging out as a flagship yard of Alcock Ashdown.
