In focus: ✔Ship repairs ✔Sideshell repairs ✔Oil tanker ✔Fujairah team ✔ Albwardy Damen Khorfakkan


The oil tanker vessel Hellas Enterprise had steel damage on sideshell during her anchorage stay. Owners approached our Greece agent DMI (Hellas) Ltd for repairs.

As the vessel was still in operation but had a scheduled stop in Khorfakkan our Fujairah team submitted a repair proposal based on a report with pictures from the crew. Eventuallly she arrived at the Khorfakkan anchorage on the 9th November for steel renewal. A repair team of twelve technicians with all the necessary materials and equipments were mobilised on the same day to start the repairs. Entire job was expected to complete in one week. After a joint inspection onboard, additional steel renewal was observed. Due to vessel’s very tight schedule, it was not possible to get extra days for the additional repairs. After mutual discussions between repairs supervisor and vessel’s technical fleet manager, it was agreed to complete the additional jobs within same agreed time frame of one week.

Additional resources were arranged and entire job was completed within the same agreed time frame. Client was very much satisfied with the repair team and commented: “Works completed on time with excellent results and HSE compliance was more than excellent.”
