Wednesday, August 28, 2002
A&P Birkenhead has reported that the recent dry docking and repair of the European Envoy has been successfully completed. The vessel, which is owned by P&O European Ferries (Irish Sea), entered the new A&P Group facility on Saturday 3rd August 2002. The dry docking work included approximately 4.0 tonnes of damaged shell plating, and passenger certificate renewal. The work was completed on Friday 9th August following which the 4,267dwt passenger vessel departed the dry dock and returned to service in the Irish Sea. The ship superintendent, Paul Radcliffe, commented: "For the first visit since re-opening the yard we have received good service from all concerned..." Martyn Drye, general manager at A&P Birkenhead said: "We are delighted to have completed our first dry docking in our No. 5 Dock and hope we can build our relationship with P&O European Ferries (Irish Sea)." The European Envoy had joined the European Pathfinder (also owned by P&O European Ferries (Irish Sea)) and the German owned Kay L which were also undergoing dry dock and repairs at the Birkenhead facility. Drye said, "We have been developing our business over recent weeks and it was very satisfying to have three vessels in our yard at one time."
