Repair of bottom plate
26 April 2022
Scanunit performed a repair of the bottom plate on a 100,000 TDW tanker out in Danafjord in Gothenburg. After the ship’s cargo had been discharged we had our team in place to make the repair. The work started with risk analysis and briefing with the crew, class and divers.
With the assistance of divers from FMS, who put a cofferdam from underneath, we could cut out the damaged plate and weld a new one in place. Everything was done with the approval of class. NDT testing and vacuum testing of welds performed after finished work. The work was estimated to take 24 hours but it was completed after 18 hours.
Repairs carried out meant that the vessel didn’t have to dock and was operational again in less than 24h.
