Strong Virginian Docks at A&P Southampton

Tuesday, June 25, 2002
A&P Southampton has recently completed dry docking and repairs aboard the heavy lift ship, Strong Virginian, a vessel owned by Van Ommeren Shipping (U.S.) LLC. The 21,541dwt vessel arrived for dry docking on May 27 following a period alongside in Marchwood Military Port, where she was demobilized prior to refit. A team from A&P Southampton assisted with the demobilization which included releasing sea fastenings and providing support to the ship's staff for removal of US Army landing craft. During this period, emergency repairs were carried out to the electrical supply equipment to the vessel's bow thruster including the supply, installation and commissioning of major switchboard components. While in dry dock, the vessel underwent various repairs including blasting and painting of ballast tanks, preparation and painting of hull, repair work on the rudders, propellers and tail shafts, shell damage steel renewals, steel work and pipe work repairs, elevator platform bearings and main engine maintenance. The Strong Virginian departed the dry dock on June 11 and will return to Marchwood where A&P Southampton will assist with the mobilization later in the month, prior to the vessel sailing for the Far East.
