The A-listed dock, which shut in 1987, will be returned to a fully operational ship repair and maintenance facility after a £500,000 restoration programme.
Govan Drydock Ltd have secured a licence to operate Govan Graving Dock number one and to bring the facility back to life for use by historic and commercial ships.
Peter Breslin, Managing Director of Govan Drydock Ltd, said: “We are committed to retaining the heritage and preserving the history of Govan Graving Dock. I am honoured to be returning this historic drydock back to active service and look forward to progressing with the restoration programme over the next six months.
“The facility will breathe life into the Govan area of Glasgow, bring employment opportunities and will become a much-needed facility for historic and commercial ships and ship owners for many years to come.”
