Car carrier in the storm

One of the largest ships to be damaged by the recent Storm Desmond was taken to A&P Group’s Tyneside yard for repairs in December 2015, and remained for a couple of months.

The vehicle carrier City of Rotterdam collided with the ro-ro cargo ship Primula Seaways on the Humber Estuary when the storm hit the north of England at the end of 2015.

A&P Group’s 100-strong Tyneside team completed structural steel repairs by the end of January.

Darren Brown, managing director of A&P Group Tyne said: ‘It was quite a spectacle to see the storm-damaged ship coming up the Tyne. We made a temporary repair to the damage at Immingham in order for her to be able to sail to the Tyne.’

A&P Group operates seven dry docks across three UK locations. The 21,143gt vehicle carrier City of Rotterdam was built in 2011.
