Ship Repairs, Ship Building and Associated Services














There are presently only two dry docking shipyards at Port Louis, namely Taylor Smith & Co Ltd, which was established in 1857 and the Chantier Naval de l’Océan Indien Ltée (CNOI), which has been set up in 2003.

Land availability around the port area is the main growth constraint particularly given the increasing number of vessels calling at Port Louis. MPA is identifying land for ship repairs in the port area and intends to earmark an additional area of about 5 Ha out of the land to be reclaimed at Fort William for the setting up of ship repair yards to accommodate large vessels as well as smaller craft. Expression of Interest for the setting up of a dry dock at Port Louis Harbour will be sought in early 2015 after the completion of the land reclamation works.
