Werner Sobek designs the largest covered floating dock in Europe
Dock 10, a floating dock of the Lürssen shipyard Blohm+Voss, is located in the heart of Hamburg, opposite the highly frequented landing stages. In the course of a structural workshop process, Werner Sobek designed a translucent membrane roofing for this structure. The new roofing makes Dock 10 the largest covered floating dock in Europe. Under the protection of the textile hull, new buildings and repairs of ships can be carried out more independently of the weather and with a high proportion of natural daylight. The enclosure will also significantly reduce noise emissions.
