•    Major overhaul of the four propulsion pods in cooperation with the manufacturer Rolls-Royce
•    Routine maintenance of the three bow thrusters
•    Routine maintenance and inspection of the four stabilizers
•    Renewal of brake linings at the windlasses and inspection of electric motors

•    Cleaning and inspection of various tanks (fuel tanks, fresh water tanks, grey water tanks, black water tanks) by the classification society
•    Completion of various classification work such as overhauling the sea valves

*In case of an insufficiently high water level during the morning high tide on November 13, 2008, the QM2 will be undocked during the next high tide in the afternoon at about 16:00 h
