AFAIK the issue is the site +/- the scope of works required. Technically a greenfields new build could/would be cheaper. However building a new drydock anywhere but on the site of the existing one (Captain Cook) means moving the facility. The best of all worlds option is something like resume Woolwich under lease (with building a new cassion etc) to cover the gap while rebuilding Captain Cook.skipper101 wrote: With the exception of the dry dock there is nothing there worth $30 billion, not the office space and not the workshops or its contents. As to refurbishing Captain Cook dry dock is it not possibly cheaper to build a new one than refurbishing the old one.
