UPGRADE WORK: Major upgrade for Seawell

After having successfully docked and repaired MSV Well Enhancer earlier in the year, Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen, part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, undertook another major upgrade during November 2014, this time of the Aberdeen-registered light well intervention/dive support vessel MSV Seawell (1986/9,158gt).

As the upgrade took place during the winter, Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen (DSV) will use their covered drydock with a 300-ton capacity overhead crane. The upgrade includes an exchange of all six gensets, overhaul of all thrusters and azimuths, replacement of two cherry pickers and the existing twin slewing cranes by a new single-boom 50-ton crane with active heave compensation. As well as the installation of the derrick, adjustments will be made to the operation of the moon pool doors, winches and other equipment.
