The P&O Stena Line passenger/car ferry P&OSL Dover has dry docked in A&P Falmouth after
arriving on 15th April 2002. This will be the final vessel from the P&O Stena Line fleet
to undergo refit this season. The P&OSL Dover has dry docked in Falmouth every year since 1990 (when she first came in as Pride of Dover). The vessel will undergo various repairs whilst in dock similar to the repairs which were recently undertaken on her sister ship the P&OSL Calais, including tail shaft and tank surveys, stern seal maintenance, bow thrust unit repairs, hull and deck preparation and painting, main engine overhaul and survey, maintenance to bow and stern doors, lifeboats and firefighting equipment, overhaul and cleaning of galley equipment and the entire renewal of the International Food Court dining area. Also a new system for recovery of oil from bilge water additional to current legislation requirements will be installed.
The P&OSL Dover will be the seventh vessel from P&O Stena Line to visit Falmouth this
winter season and A&P Falmouth is pleased to say that the ferry refit season has progressed very well despite tight docking schedules.
