HSR Tackles Offshore Service Vessel

Work Completed: 2011

A swath vessel was abandoned in 1998 in an incomplete stage of construction by the original builders and owners. The hull with some of the machinery in place was purchased by her present owners who intend to convert the hull to a wind turbine maintenance vessel for offshore service.

The vessel was delivered to a protected lay berth facility arranged by HSR and the following scope of work was carried on the vessel:

  • Recondition the four (4) main propulsion and service generator engine
  • Overhaul the four (4) main alternators
  • Remove, recondition and reinstall the main switch boards, MCC’s and SCR’s
  • Remove, recondition and reposition the main power transformers
  • Install lighting and main propulsion cables
  • Complete various piping systems including air vents and sounding pipes
  • Remove, recondition or renew, and reinstall pumps, compressors and auxiliary equipment
  • Overhaul the main propulsion gear boxes
  • Extensive renewal of deck plating
  • Installation of weathertight doors.

The aforementioned work was carried out to the satisfaction of her owners and the vessels classification society. The vessel is now in drydock pending completion of steel repairs in way of underwater areas and sea trials.
