SHIPYARD NEWS: Damen work on cruise ships

Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam had a busy few months at the end of 2014. A 17-day drydocking for the cruise ship MSC Magnifica was completed on schedule, and she left for Hamburg to start her next cruise in November 2014. Built in 2010, MSC Magnifica arrived at the yard on 20 October 2014 and was berthed at the yard’s largest dry dock, which is 307m in length.

The work involved the replacement of 47 tonnes of steel, replacing the rudders, and cleaning and painting the vessel. Commenting on the project, Marc Derks, Project Manager, said: ‘This was an excellent operation, I am proud of the team. The advance planning and preparation paid off’.

On 2 December another cruise ship,Saga Sapphire, arrived at the yard for her own period of drydocking and maintenance, while Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen handled two 167m cruise ships, Astor and Marco Polo from CMV, during thesame period.
