Tasks performed for this project
  • Repair

Between 7 and 16 November 2018 Damen Harbour & Voyage (DHV) worked on the 335-metre, 10,000 TEU CMA CGM Mumbai container vessel in Rotterdam. Owned by Seaspan Corporation and currently under charter to CMA CGM, the Mumbai had been delivered just seven months earlier. Damen was initially called to the vessel to inspect damage to the bow caused by a collision. It was apparent that immediate repairs were required, but the size of the ship made it difficult to find a suitable berth. With the vessel on a tight schedule the decision was made to carry out the repairs with the ship moored to a dolphin at the Maasvlakte.

This brought a whole new dimension to the project, not least because with the vessel on open water, it was much more exposed to the weather.

However, DHV is highly experienced in exactly these types of repairs and immediately swung into action.

Before the actual repairs could begin, a substantial amount of equipment had to deployed around the bow of the Mumbai, including pontoons, floating cranes, and the materials needed to undertake the work. Once those were in the place, staging was built to allow the DHV team to reach the bow and begin work to remove the damaged steel. Meanwhile, their colleagues at Damen Verolme Rotterdam (DVR) were busy fabricating the steel for the new bow section. With all the damage steel removed and the area prepared, the new bow section was brought to the Mumbai. There it was lifted off the barge using the floating crane and carefully positioned so that its various components could be fitted and then welded in place.

Experience the key

The success of projects undertaken in open water depends on experience and faultless preparation. Everything needs to be in the right place at the right time, and mistakes and a lack of foresight can cost many valuable hours. Once again, DHV demonstrated its expertise and experience and, in partnership with its partners at DVR, delivered a successful outcome on time and to budget.

Jiansong Yang, Fleet Manager at Seaspan Ship Management Ltd, commented, “Our special thanks to Mr. Ruiter and his hard-working team who, with their best efforts day and night, made it happen in such difficult circumstances with lots of challenges! We highly appreciate the great teamwork and look forward to the next business opportunity in the future.”
