Harland and Wolff Secures More International Repair and Conversion Work

Tuesday 28 June 2005

The vessel, “Havdrott”, a 220 metre long liquid petroleum gas carrier owned by Norwegian ship management company Bergesen, sails back into service this week following a comprehensive catalogue of remedial work.

David McVeigh, head of Harland and Wolff sales and marketing, says pressure was on to turn the vessel around in the fastest possible time.

“We undertook a full hull blast and repaint as well as repairs to turbo chargers, propellers and ship side valves,” he says. “This work was completed in nine days and the vessel returned on schedule.”

“The contract with Bergesen is significant”, Mr McVeigh says, “because this is a high quality customer who owns and manages a significant number of vessels.”

“The Bergesen fleet consists of small, medium and large LPG vessels, this vessel was one of the medium sized and we would be very keen to generate more business with Bergesen in the future,” says Mr McVeigh.
