Project Requirements: Steel repairs, pipe renewals, grit-blasting the hull, electrical repairs and installations, main engine repairs and refurbishing the anchors.
The Project: A&P Tyne, part of the A&P Group, successfully completed major refurbishment works and complete repaint to the 15,000 tonne, 183 metre long vessel. The project was in the Tyne yard’s dry dock for 14 days with the project completed on time and to budget.
Scope of Work: The works at A&P Tyne included steel repairs, pipe renewals, grit-blasting the hull, electrical repairs and installations, main engine repairs and refurbishing the anchors. With a team of 100 men working around the clock the Sinbad refurbishment was completed to a tight work schedule. With extensive experience in all of these fields and therefore the knowledge and capabilities in house to undertake these tasks to a very a high standard, the client left the yard extremely happy.
The Result: Project Manager Paul Baker commented,
“This project was an enjoyable refit on which to work, the vessel is of a substantial size and presented a few challenges which we were able to overcome.”
Robert Davis, President of US based Admanthos Shipping Agency, who manage the Sinbad backs up Paul’s comments, stating;
“Our appointed European technical representative Mr Robin Goatley, Chief Superintendent of North Atlantic Shipping Agency has commented very favourably on the recent performance of A&P Tyne shipyard during the dry-docking and repair period of our managed vessel M/T Sinbad.
“This is the first time that the vessel’s owners have considered using this yard and the contract was awarded on the basis of a winning competitive quote with other North European yards. The whole job was completed on time with some significant changes in the specification that was managed very well by the yard and its sub-contractors.
“This was achieved by excellent co-operation between the yard and our management team and thus we look forward to a sustained relationship with A&P Tyne and other members of the A&P Group.”
