Damen Shiprepair Brest (DSBr) has announced that it has completed a renewal survey maintenance programme on the Gaselys LNG carrier.
The LNG carrier is co-owned by NYK Line and ENGIE, operated by Gazocean and chartered by ENGIE. It came into DSBr for a regular periodical docking that included a full schedule of works.
The maintenance programme included servicing the cargo pumps, overboard valves, thrusters, mooring winches and the cargo cranes. Two of the main compensators were also replaced, the fans overhauled, and assistance given to the specialist subcontractors responsible for maintaining the LD HD compressors. New insulation was fitted to areas of piping. Additional works included removing mud from the ballast tanks, and blasting and repainting the hull and superstructure.
Diego Groenendijk, Commercial Manager at DSBr, said: “The docking was completed on time and on budget thanks to excellent cooperation between all the parties involved. Extensive preparations at the yard before the Gaselys arrived also ensured that works got underway immediately and continued without interruption.”
Nicolas Barnaud, President of NYK Armateur, added: “The choice of a ship repair yard for a scheduled technical stop is always the result of a tender, in which are taken into account the competitiveness and clarity of the commercial offer, as well as the previous track record of the owner with the repair yard and its facility. Damen was selected on these grounds. The high commitment of the Damen teams, combined with that of all the crew members, the Gazocean vessel manager and the procurement team, confirmed that this choice was the good option.”
