Damen Shiprepair carries out maintenance to seven CMA CGM vessels

Damen Shiprepair and Conversion (DSC) has recently carried out a series of works on seven vessels owned by CMA CGM, a world leader in shipping and logistics.

The projects took place between June and December 2020 at Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam (DSAm) in the Netherlands and Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque (DSDu) in France. The last vessel is scheduled to leave DSDu during January 2020.

In a continuous operation running between June and August, DSAm performed back-to-back maintenance and repair works on CMA CGM Cayenne, CMA CGM Saint Laurent and CMA CGM Marseille, identical 190m 2,100 TEU container sister vessels.

The three ships underwent similar programmes, centred around their five year surveys. Additional works included the vessels being reinforced with 11,000 kilograms of steel welded to the bow section.

Each ship had its cargo cranes maintained and five annual load tests were performed. The yard also repainted the vessels.

At DSDu, the vessel Africa Three, Africa Four, Africa Two and Africa One (in that order) arrived for back-to-work programmes between July and December 2020 for maintenance and repair works this time centred on the vessels’ ten year surveys, including offloading all hatch covers, hull painting and cell guide repairs.

At the same time, DSDu successfully installed ballast water treatment systems to each vessel.
