  • Repairs & special survey

The 82-metre pilot station vessel (PSV) Pollux was welcomed at Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) in June 2018 for routine maintenance and her first special survey.

The programme involved various maintenance actions that formed part of the special survey, including the overhaul of the propulsion train, generators, pumps, sea valves and box coolers. The propeller shafts were also inspected, the impressed current system modified and the bow thruster overhauled. Modifications were also made to the sea chest and the sea water systems, and the exterior of the vessel was repainted. A number of additional issues became apparent during the works but were absorbed into the schedule without having an impact on the completion date.

The yard’s covered dry-dock was also available, which removed any timing uncertainties connected with the weather. As a result, the job was completed within the agreed time frame.

This was the first visit to DSR by Pollux but the Polaris, one of her two sister ships, came to the yard in 2017 for maintenance and a special survey. The third of the sister ships, Procyon, has also recently been docked at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen. Damen Shiprepair and Conversion (DSC) has a strong relationship with Nederlands Loodswezen, the Dutch Maritime Pilots' Organisation that operates the vessels. They require clarity on the cost and duration of a project before they can place an order, and this DSR is able to provide.

The three P-Class PSVs were delivered over the course of 2012-2014 to replace the previous fleet of 35-year old PSVs operated by Nederlands Loodswezen. They are tough, capable ships designed to maintain station offshore, providing offshore accommodation for the crew of the pilot boats, and to operate for extended periods in all weather conditions. The three identical vessels are built to a very high specification to reflect the critical role that they play in ensuring the safety of shipping around the Dutch coastline.
