In today’s spotted, we bring you images of Gaselys, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier which underwent a renewal survey maintenance program at Damen Shiprepair Brest (DSBr) in France.
The 154,472 cbm vessel is co-owned by Japanese shipping company NYK Line and French electric utility company Engie and operated by Marseille-based shipping firm Gazocean.
Featuring a length of 289.6 meters and a width of 43.4 meters, Gaselys was built at French STX France shipyard in 2007.
When it was launched, Gaselys was, along with its sister ship Provalys, the largest LNG carrier ever built, Damen said.
In February, Gaselys arrived at DSBr yard for a regular periodical docking that included a full schedule of works.
The maintenance program included, among other tasks, servicing the cargo pumps, overboard valves, thrusters, mooring winches and the cargo cranes. Two of the main compensators were also replaced, the fans overhauled, and assistance given to the specialist subcontractors responsible for maintaining the LD HD compressors. In addition, new insulation was fitted to areas of piping.
Additional works included removing mud from the ballast tanks, and blasting and repainting the hull and superstructure, according to Damen.
