POSL Kent at A&P Falmouth

Wednesday, January 23, 2002
A&P Falmouth has recently completed repairs onboard the P&O Stena Line passenger/car ferry vessel, POSL Kent. The vessel arrived on the evening of the 23rd December 2001 and dry docked on arrival into No. 2 dock, work started on the 24th December and was carried out during the holiday period with only a short break for Christmas and New Years Day. During the docking period, work was carried out on both the starboard and port stabilisers. Other dry-dock work included underwater preparation and painting, the renewing of propeller blades and steel renewal work on the stern spade and areas of belting. The vessel undocked on the January 7, 2002 and was berthed alongside the Duchy Wharf for completion of repairs, which included the survey of the port main engine, shell water tight openings, surveys of pumps, windlasses and sea valves and internal steel work in the sponson tanks. Painting was carried out on top sides and accommodation block, and the lower car deck was blasted using Ultra High Pressure (UHP) which minimises the interference with other work being carried out in the area. The vessel sailed from Falmouth on January 12 and resumed service on the Dover to Calais route.
