A&P North East Continues to Operate at Full Capacity.

28 May 2024

It has been a busy few weeks at A&P Tyne with three vessels simultaneously undergoing their ship repair works at the facility.

A&P Tyne is part of the leading global marine business APCL Group and specialises in ship repair, conversion and fabrication services across the marine and renewables sectors.

The facility is currently utilising drydock no.1 to facilitate its first double docking of the year with NorthLink’s Helliar and Atlantic Oceanic’s Atlantic Sovereign, while Boskalis’ Boka Northern Ocean has moved alongside onto the facility’s West Quay.

Freight vessel MV Helliar provides regular freight travel between Aberdeen, Orkney and Shetland and will spend two weeks in drydock to complete an extensive programme of works.

The vessel’s scope of work includes the overhaul of the vessel’s prt propeller and aft starboard mooring winch as well as the fabrication of her sea water cooling pipes and sea chest filter.

A&P is also carrying out a full HP wash, tank cleaning, anchor cables ranged and cleaning of chain lockers.

Meanwhile, Offshore Supply Ship Atlantic Sovereign is undergoing a full survey scope involving the removal of both propellor shafts for survey, all tanks opened for inspection and cleaning as well as the removal and refitting of a new port side deck crane.

A&P Tyne has also been tasked with preparing construction support vessel Boka Northern Ocean for her operations in the North Sea after an extended period working in Asia. This included some modifications to the deck layout, upgrades, and maintenance, as well as the manufacture and installation of two ROV LARS grillages.

Ian Douglas, Managing Director of A&P Tyne, said: “I am delighted to see our facility so busy and has been operating at full capacity since the start of 2024.

“Our highly skilled workforce enables us to accommodate a wide variety of vessels and operate around the clock to support new and returning customers alike.”
