Damen Shiprepair Brest completes maintenance on LNG carrier

Damen Shiprepair Brest (DSBr) has completed a two-week maintenance programme on the 290m 101,000gt LNG carrier GDF Suez Point Fortin during July.

DSBr is one of the most experienced European yards in the repair and maintenance of LNG carriers.

The works took place in the second half of May and included a full, in-water survey conducted by divers, changing of the mooring cables from wire to rope, and full Class surveys carried out on the main boilers. A radar dome was also replaced.

Given the constaints imposed by working on an LNG carrier when gassed-up, an extensive programme of preparations was required before the maintenance could get underway.

These included obtaining the necessary permissions from the port authority and agreeing the scope of works with the client prior to arrival.

As of June, the GDF Suez Point Fortin was back at sea and fully operational.

DSBr’s track record in maintaining and repairing LNG carriers of all sizes includes a renewal survey maintenance programme carried out on the 290m Gaselys earlier in 2017.

Prior to that, the yard has also worked on the Gaselys’ sister ship the Provalys and on other LNG carriers such as Global Energy and Tellier.
