Tampico yard

Dragados Offshore opened its Tampico yard in 2003, after five years of successfully executing projects for the Mexican market. The yard is located on the south side of the Panuco River in Pueblo Viejo, Veracruz—adjacent to the city of Tampico, in the Gulf of Mexico. The facility was purpose-built for the construction of offshore projects.

The yard occupies nearly 350,000 m2, and has more than 70,000 m2 of fabrication areas, including workshops for boiler works, welding, piping, and hydromechanics. Additionally, the yard has 90,000 m2 of storage areas, two quay areas with skidways, and a soil-bearing capacity of more than 20 tons per m2.

Altamira yard

In 2013, Dragados Offshore decided to further expand its facilities in the Mexican market by adding a new yard to its current asset portfolio in the country. This is Dragados Offshore’s second yard in Mexico and third yard globally. The strategic decision to acquire this new facility was made not only to satisfy growing demand in the local market, but also to further target projects in the North American and South American regions.
The yard, set to be operational during 2014, has 400,000 m2, with an option to further expand the area to 600,000 m2. The yard will be fully equipped with workshops and office facilities. The layout of the facility will be set up according to our typical construction sequences to optimize workflows.
