Having built and delivered two of these sister vessels in 2003, Harland and Wolff have maintained a close working relationship with Andrew Weir Ltd, the vessels owners and managers.
- Services: Conversion
- Client: AWSR Ltd
- Project: MV Anvil Point and MV Eddystone
- Date Commenced: July 2007
- Date Delivered: August 2007
Despite additional deviation from their normal route, the vessels were brought to Belfast for their first 5-year docking and survey.
The work was carried out on time, to budget, and to the exacting standards expected by the customer. The owner has since agreed that the apparently cheaper yards gave a longer ultimate timescale and higher cost and all six vessels would have been better contracted to H&W.
The workscope included:
- Dry dock
- Full hull blasting and painting
- Main engine repairs
- Generator repairs
- Thrusters repairs
- Rudder repairs
- Accommodation upgrade
The MV Aberdeen is a North Sea Shuttle Tanker operated by Northern Marine Management on behalf of Stena Offshore.
