The infrastructure facilities originally consisted of two wet basins, one 680 meters long and 65 meters wide and the other 680 meters long and 60 meters wide. The first of these wet docks has been converted into a dry dock measuring 662 meters long and 65 meters wide, the second largest in the world.

The dry dock is serviced by two Goliath cranes 148 meters span and 75 meters high, each with lifting capacity of 600 tons. Together, these cranes can lift weights of up to 1,200 tons. Also available at the site are two Level Luffing cranes, with a combined lifting capacity of 80 tons. The entrance of the dry dock also features a 100 meter extension track for the Goliath cranes to unload heavy machinery and equipment directly from ships and heavy lift barges.
