Mighty Servant 3 Rejoins Dockwise Fleet

Monday, August 10, 2009

Dockwise Ltd, announces that, through its subsidiary the fully renewed and reinstated Mighty Servant 3 has rejoined the fleet of Dockwise. The vessel has been under repair at the Grand Bahama Shipyard since January, 2008.
 
The entire vessel has been rebuilt beginning with the steel hull. New machinery, electrical systems and equipment have been installed to the latest standards and designs, using the original functionality and foot print.
 
"This is a reinstatement project in a magnitude that has never been performed before - no one has ever taken a vessel submerged in 50 meters of seawater for 5 months and brought her back to service. This has been a very unique project," stated Eugène van Dodeweerd, Manager Fleet Supervision Quality & Safety of Dockwise Shipping B.V..
 
The two Wärtsilä (W12V38A) engines were extracted from the vessel locally, fully dismantled and later shipped in parts to Wärtsilä Netherland's workshop in Zwolle.
 
The accommodations block was extended by inserting an additional layer to accommodate up to 50 persons including crewmembers, visiting clients and personnel. Additionally all interior elements have been renewed and updated to the most modern standards.
 
"The Mighty Servant 3 will be available to serve customers to the highest operational and safety standards for transport, installation and logistical management projects in the future. The return of this vessel to the fleet is a turning point in reinstatement history," said André Goedée,  Chief Executive Officer of Dockwise Ltd.
