River Dee Shiprepairers Awarded Contract

Monday, June 09, 2003
Aberdeen’s River Dee Shiprepairers, part of the A&P Group, has won a second drydocking contract from BP Oil following the successful completion of the scheduled repair to the 2,734 dwt coastal tanker Border Jouster. River Dee initially quoted for the repair of the Border Jouster but were then asked to make it a two-ship deal; involving the 2,257 dwt Border Warrior. Work on the Border Jouster, which arrived in Aberdeen on May 13th, included overhaul of the main engine and auxiliary engine room equipment, tailshaft and underwater valves, refurbishment of the cargo pumps and the boiler unit, and washing and painting the ship’s hull. The tanker has now passed sea trials and will go back into service by May 29th. Meanwhile, the Border Warrior, which was confirmed this week, is due to arrive on June 5th for a similar drydocking programme. This is likely to be the last drydocking for both these tankers, which were built in 1972 and 1968 respectively. Prior the award of both contracts, BP Oil carried out a full safety audit of the shipyard, as it was to be the first time under the A&P banner that ships from BP Oil had used the Aberdeen facility. John Allan, Director & General Manager of River Dee Shiprepairers, said: “We won the contracts not only on price and delivery, but also on the acceptance by the shipowner of our excellent health and safety record”.
