Grand-Class Cruise Ship 'P&O Ventura' at DSBr for 5-year docking + scrubbers

Early in 2018 DSBr welcomed its first visitor from the Carnival Group, the P&O Cruises Grand-class cruise ship Ventura, for a two-week docking. Launched in 2008, this was the first visit of the 288.60-metre, 116,017 GT vessel to the yard, where she underwent a regular inspection together with a range of maintenance works.

Scrubber installation plus 5-year docking

As well as the repairs and refurbishments associated with a five-year docking, the Ventura came to DSBr for the installation of two exhaust gas scrubbers. As well as supporting the contractors, DSBr designed, manufactured and installed a sea chest for the system.

While the Ventura was in drydock number 3, at 420m by 80m the largest of DSBr’s three dry docks, the hull was ultra-high-pressure water blasted and then, along with the superstructure, repainted. Additional works of note included maintenance of the propulsion systems and stabilisers, plus a range minor repairs.

Cruise ships require special treatment

As with all cruise ship dockings, completing the works within the agreed period was absolutely critical, with the Ventura due to start a cruise immediately after the scheduled completion. The logistics for large cruise ships are particularly challenging, with meticulous planning needed before the vessel arrives.

For the Ventura, a wide range of subcontractors required access to the vessel both inside and out, and hundreds of containers, trucks and garbage skips had to be positioned around the dock and manoeuvred as necessary during the two-week period. That planning plus excellent organisation while she was in the yard was the key to a successful outcome, and the Ventura departed DSBr on time with all works completed and in top shape for her 3,574 passengers and 1,220 crew.

Equipped to take the largest cruise ships

With two dry docks of 420-metres and 338-metres respectively plus a convenient and easily-accessed location for cruise ships entering and leaving the Atlantic, DSBr has much to offer owners and operators of cruise ships looking for yards capable of meeting their specific needs. In recent years, the yard has made substantial investments in its facilities including an enhanced black and grey water disposal capability and a new fire and cooling water supply system. The yard also features ample owners’ storage, extensive laydown areas and spacious temporary workshops for subcontractors. There is even an adjacent container terminal. The yard has a constructive relationship with the local authorities and, with a culture at the yard based on maximising safety and cooperation, customers can rely on a committed, efficient service at every level.
