Lisnave Wins Multi-Million$ Contract

As the result of an accident which occurred during discharging operation in May in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the 46,614-dwt product carrier Kriti Amber required extensive steelwork renewal and other repairs.

Among competition to win the repair contract from yards in Brazil and Greece, Portugal's Lisnave eventually won the contract following lengthy discussions.

The major repairs comprise replacement of more than 700 tons of steel in double bottom tanks, bulkheads in cargo tanks numbers 3c, 4c and 5c, and on the main deck.

Damaged equipment in all of the areas is to be replaced, which also involves repairing/replacing the hydraulic control system and piping system in the cargo tanks — involving pipes of up to 400 mm in diameter and totaling 20,000 m in length — and replacing 14,000 m of electrical cable. Blasting and coating with special paints will encompass 10,000-sq.-m.

Kriti Amber was built in 1995 at Black Sea Shipyards, Ukraine, and is owned by Varnima Corp.

International. It is classed by Lloyd's Register.
