Tasks performed for this project
  • Maintenance and repair

Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam was appointed by Global Maritime Group to carry out a range of maintenance tasks on the 1985 built, 46,052GRT cruise ship ‘Magellan’.

Timing was critical to the project, with five weeks allocated to the stopover in between ‘Magellan’s’ full cruise programme and only two weeks available for works, effective and precise project management was needed to ensure the successful docking.

Steel repairs

During the docking at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam the hull, rudders and propellers where thoroughly inspected, cleaned and polished. In addition, significant steel repairs took place in the aft peak tank and the high elastic friction clutch e-motor was overhauled.

Lifeboats

Other maintenance tasks included removing the 16 lifeboats and taking them ashore for servicing, together with standard docking tasks including surveying the tail shaft, checking rudder clearances and cleaning the sea chests, anodes and chain locker and a full painting program. Furthermore, small modifications were made to the Jacuzzi on the sun deck of the cruise vessel.

Chemically cleaned

Additional tasks required to be completed by the team at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam included overhauling the eight air conditioning units on ‘Magellan’ and chemically cleaning the entire grey/black water vacuum system with its 700 toilets.

Various pipes were also renewed, including those serving the sea water pumps, ballast tank air vents and suction lines; the stabiliser fins were serviced and the incinerator was refurbished.

Close cooperation

“Overall, the project went smoothly due to close cooperation between the vessel’s management, the shipyard and last but not least, a very cooperative crew,” explained Ruud Haneveer, sales manager at Damen Shiprepair & Conversion. “The timescale was very challenging given the scope of the work required, but the quality of our facilities and the expertise of our workforce ensured that everything was successfully completed on time.”
