Irish Ferries Dock with A&P Group

Monday, March 25, 2002
A&P Group announces the successful dry dockings of three Irish Ferries vessels. Ulysses, one of the world’s largest car ferries, was the first to dry dock at A&P Southampton in January. This 50,938 grt vessel, which operates between Holyhead (North Wales) and Dublin City (Ireland), has capacity for 2000 persons and up to 260 articulated vehicles on or 1,342 cars on four decks and has the equivalent of 4km of roadway for articulated vehicles onboard. Whilst in dock, this almost new and excellently maintained vessel underwent various repairs including bow modifications to allow for simultaneous lane discharge of both cars and articulated vehicles from the upper decks.

The second of the Irish Ferries to dry dock was the 34,031 grt Isle of Inishmore which also dry docked at A&P Southampton's King George V dry dock. The Isle of Inishmore dry docked immediately after the Ulysses left dock on 23rd January and underwent various works including painting, tank surveys, lifeboat surveys and load testing, engine works and general deck repairs.

The third Irish Ferry to dry dock was the Normandy, which underwent repairs in A&P Falmouth's No. 2 dock. The Normandy currently operates on the Rosslare/Cherbourg and Roscoff route. The 24,872 grt vessel arrived in Falmouth on 7th February for a variety of refit work including steel repairs, stripping and surveying of the two main engines, overhaul of the generators and painting of all underwater areas. The Normandy departed A&P Falmouth on February 23.
