A&P Shipcare Completes Repairs Aboard American Cormorant

Thursday, September 13, 2001
The 52,092 dwt U.S.-registered Heavy Lift Vessel 'American Cormorant' left Southampton on 2nd September after its annual lay over during which A&P Shipcare - Southampton carried out various works. The 1975-built 'American Cormorant' was in the Southampton area for a visit to the Combat Equipment Battalion in Hythe. The vessel arrived in Southampton on 8th June and sailed on 29th August. The work completed by A&P Shipcare included various tank repairs which entailed bulkhead steel repairs, steel pipe refurbishment and repairs and replacement of heavy duty plastic pipe, a task which previously had never been carried out by A&P Shipcare - Southampton. A&P also supplied steelworkers and riggers for de-lashing work of her cargo, which comprised three tugs, three landing craft, a crane barge, a flat barge and two LCM (small landing craft), when the vessel was berthed at Gillkicker Point, Solent on 4th June. The second stage of the work involved the removal of deck cargo cribbing arrangements to carry out deck repairs. The operators of 'American Cormorant' - Osprey Ship Management Inc. are said to be very pleased with the work that A&P Shipcare - Southampton had completed and very impressed with the quality of workmanship. A&P Shipcare operates a 24 hour/day, 365 days/year service to shipowners from bases in all the main A&P shipyards (Tyne, Chatham, Southampton and Falmouth) and in additional locations at Ramsgate, Dover, Tilbury and Aberdeen.
