A view of the original dry dock at Brooke Dockyard in Kuching, Sarawak, constructed in 1912 under British rule.

The company owning the dockyard is still going strong. Here is some information taken from their website:

Brooke Dockyard was established in 1912 during the reign of the 2nd White Rajah of Sarawak, Charles Brooke. It has undergone a few organisation restructuring since then (understandably!) and in 1977, Brooke Dockyard become a fully owned Government Statutory Body under the BDEWC Ordinance.

Brooke Dockyard now has firmly established itself as a leading marine engineering entity in Sarawak with active involvement in the oil & gas, shipbuilding, ship repair, bridges infrastructure and onshore manufacturing sectors. It has a steady workforce of more than 400 personnel with its competencies ranging from engineering, welding and maintenance services.
