Damen Harlingen completes repair project on Vlieland ferry

Damen Shiprepair Harlingen (DSHl) has recently completed a repair project to Rederij Doeksen’s passenger/car ferry Vlieland.

The vessel operates a ferry service across the Wadden Sea between Harlingen in the north of the Netherlands and the island of Vlieland.

Vlieland required repair following a recent incident that took place as she was departing the harbour in Harlingen. As a result of the accident, the vessel’s SB engine room became flooded.

DSHL carried out an emergency operation, closing the hole, before moving the vessel on to the yard for full repairs.

At the yard, DSHL carried out a series of works on the vessel, including the removal of the main- and auxiliary engines, the gearboxes and all electrical equipment and wiring.

Following this, the yard undertook the rebuilding of the engine room. This included re-installing the CAT 3508 main engines and Cat 3406 & 3408 auxiliary engines cpl/w generator sets that had been overhauled by PON.

At the same time, the yard blasted the hull and repainted the vessel. A local company, electrical technicians Piet Brouwer, installed a new monitoring and safety system to Vlieland, Rederij Doeksen having decided to take the opportunity to do so while the vessel was in dock.
