Stern tube seal renewal and related repairs along with routine drydock repairs.

The bulk carrier was accommodated in the 125,000 DWT drydock for her repair requirements and thereafter she was accommodated at yard’s alongside pier. The repairs were carried out meeting the American Bureau of Shipping​ (ABS) classification society requirements.

This was owner/s manager’s first experience with Colombo Dockyard. The owner’s interests were looked after by Mr. Antoine Doucas – owners Representative and Ms. Elia Kostapoulou- Superintendent Engineer.

The owners were pleasantly surprised with the excellent facilities at their disposal coupled with the quality workmanship, professional approach to meet the owners requirements were highly appreciated.
