DND Management Inc. of Greece called in for major drydocking and lay up repairs for its 37.295 DWT bulk carrier Ionian Sea during November 2011, During this drydocking at Colombo Dockyard the major work scope consisted of steel renewal (25 Tons), mainly tank internals and cross deck stiffeners. 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. This is the first time in the history of the shipyard that a Lady Superintendent had been assigned for overlooking the repairs.

The yard team was headed by Ship Manager Ajith Kariyapperuma – who was well supported by all production departments to re-deliver the vessel on schedule. 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.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
