  • Maintenance
  • Special survey

Damen Shiprepair & Conversion has completed maintenance and surveys on four bulk carriers for CN Bulkers, a joint venture between Universal Shipping & Trading and NedNor.

The four vessels, all between 16,000 and 17,000 DWT, had been inactive following the insolvency of their previous owners and had not been drydocked for four years.

Two locations

The vessels came up to the North Sea from the Mediterranean either under tow or using their own power and arrived in Rotterdam at the end of December/beginning of January.

‘Skagen’ and ‘St Rossa’ were taken to Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam and ‘Alava’ and ‘Hagen’ were taken to Damen Shiprepair Van Brink Rotterdam with both locations used in order to complete the works in the quickest possible time.

15-year special survey

The scope of works included five-year special surveys for ‘Skagen’, ‘Alava’ and ‘Hagen’ and a 15-year special survey for ‘St Rossa’.

Each vessel underwent a thorough cleaning and repainting below the waterline, together with blasting where required.

New names were then painted on the topsides: ‘Sotra’, ‘Sanna’, ‘Senja’ and ‘Silda’.

Further work included inspection and maintenance of all O/B valves, anodes and gearboxes and load testing of the cranes. The vessel’s anchors and chains were laid out for checking and to ensure they were the correct length and the seawater inlet chests were cleaned.

‘Hagen’ also required a complete engine overhaul and straightening of the crankshaft that was carried out in-situ in the engine room.

Timescale

Work on all four cargo ships was completed in eight weeks, a tight timescale with it critical for the project to be finished to schedule as the vessels were booked for a charter.

Good experiences

Universal Marine is providing management services for the vessels.

“We decided to drydock the vessels at Damen Shiprepair & Conversion because of the good experiences we have had with them,” said Bert Pleysier, Technical Director of Universal Marine. “They are flexible, practical and fast. They also have ready access to a large variety of well-equipped sub-contractors close by in the neighbourhoods of their shipyards.”

“It’s been ten years since we last had vessels from Universal Marine at Damen, so it’s a pleasure to welcome them back,” added Boudewijn Baan, Sales Manager at Damen Shiprepair & Conversion. “Our extensive network of repair yards allowed us to complete this multi-vessel project within just two months and have them ready for charter once again.”
