  • Class survey work
  • Maintenance and repair

Damen Shiprepair Brest (DSBr) was chosen to carry out a class survey on shuttle tankers ‘Heather Knutsen’ and ‘Jasmine Knutsen’ and repairs and maintenance to LNG tanker ‘Sevilla Knutsen’.

‘Heather Knutsen’

Once ‘Heather Knutsen’ had arrived at the dry dock, one of the first tasks was to de-slop the tanker, using the shipyard’s permanent de-slopping discharge system.

Survey

The class survey revealed extensive work was required on ‘Heather Knutsen’ with a full hull anticorrosive program executed, including topside painting and new logos.

In addition, the 2005 built DP3 shuttle tanker required the complete overhaul of all thrusters – transverse tunnel thrusters and retractable azimuth thrusters – and repairs to the propulsion, steering gear and rudders.

Servicing

Other work carried out on ‘Heather Knutsen’ incorporated modifications and repairs to the bow loading system, servicing of the pressure/vacuum valves to ensure they are fit for purpose for providing protection of the cargo tanks against over or under pressure and maintenance of other cargo equipment.

The last part of the work entailed a full boiler inspection and service.

‘Sevilla Knutsen’

LNG tanker ‘Sevilla Knutsen’ needed intensive and complex maintenance jobs to be carried out by Damen Shiprepair Brest. The vessel is operated by Knutsen OAS Shipping AS and was docked for 16 days while the intensive work was completed, made challenging by the short time frame available.

Antifouling

Cargo tanks maintenance works including inerting / purging of the cargo tanks were executed, together with preparation for and application of an Intersleek silicon foul release coating on the hull and the twin propellers.

Valves

Further works carried out included servicing of the cargo, stripping and fuel gas pumps plus servicing of the high and low voltage electrical motors and cryogenic and overboard valves.

In addition, the auxiliary and exhaust gas boilers were overhauled.

‘Jasmine Knutsen’

This was the first visit of ‘Jasmine Knutsen’ to Damen Shiprepair Brest with the tanker entering the yard after ‘Sevilla Knutsen’ for a class survey.

The tanker, built in 2005, was at the yard in dry dock no 3 for 19 days where a range of works were carried out including treatment to her hull, servicing of her bow loading system and installation of a new LSO cooler.

Workers at Damen Shiprepair Brest also serviced the retractable azimuth thrusters, carried out machining work to the main propeller blade and surveyed the hose handling cranes.

Challenge

Although it was a challenge to complete the required works within the short time frames allowed for each vessel at Damen Shiprepair Brest, both Canship Ugland Limited and Knutsen OAS Shipping AS, were very pleased with the work carried out.
