Over the past few weeks, our vessel team has completed a lot of vessel inspections and repairs in Dublin Port and the Port of Cork. Irish Sea Contractors is approved by DNV GL Classification Society and Bureau Veritas to carry out in-water hull inspections with our in-house divers/welders qualified to AWS D3.6 m Class A Standard.
Here's an overview of three recent projects completed by the team:
1. Mv Onego Neva This vessel is a general cargo that was built in 2008 and has a carrying capacity of 11121 t DWT and her length overall is 145.63 metres. While she was docked in Dublin Port, the team carried out an inspection of the bottom of the ship and removed a rope from her bow thruster.
2. Mv Wilson Clyde
A general cargo that was built in 1998 with a carrying capacity of 4483 t DWT and length overall is 99.9 metres. The team carried out an in water dive survey on the vessel which was streamed live to the DNV GL surveyor to witness as he was unable to travel due to the COVID-19 restrictions. This was all carried out in Dublin Port.
3. Mv Maersk Nijmegan
This container ship was built in 2009 and has a carrying capacity of 2550 TEU and a length overall of 210.1 metres. While she was docked in the Port of Cork, the team carried out an in-water class dive survey and streamed the survey live for the DNV GL surveyor to witness. The dive survey was carried out from a dive boat due to the activities in the Port. The vessel was only docked for 1 day so it was imperative that our team completed the works on schedule.
