  • Repairs and rebranding

In March 2019 the wind turbine installation jack-up vessel MPI Resolution departed Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) after nearly eight weeks at the yard undergoing a repair and rebranding programme. The vessel was the world’s first purpose-built installation vessel for offshore wind turbines, entering service in 2003. She is known for her unique combination of tested technologies applied in innovative ways to provide a single vessel solution for the offshore wind sector.

Rebranding

Following the acquisition in 2018 of her owner MPI Offshore by Van Oord, the repair works provided the opportunity to also remove her original red and white paint scheme using ultra-high-pressure water jets and to repaint her in the blue, orange and white livery of van Oord.

The Van Oord logo was also mounted on the back of the jack housings and the aft mast, main crane and auxiliary crane were repainted in the new corporate colours.

Repairs

The 130m by 38m MPI Resolution went into dry dock for an overhaul of her thrusters and steel repairs to the hull. The four Azimuth thrusters and three tunnel thrusters were all disassembled, checked, cleaned and reinstalled. At the same time, the six legs and the inner surfaces of the leg wells underwent repairs, cleaning and blasting before receiving new coatings. With only two entrances at deck level to the leg wells, this was a challenging job. Four of her ballast tanks also received similar treatment. Gaining access to the ballast tanks required making eight separate openings in the hull. A range of other minor repairs and maintenance jobs took place at the same time.

Valued customer

The team at DSR was very pleased to welcome a member of the MPI Offshore fleet under its new ownership. Van Oord is a longstanding and highly valued customer of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, as was MPI Offshore under its previous management. MPI Resolution’s previous visit was to Damen Verolme Rotterdam (DVR) in 2011 for a crane test.
