Sun Cruises Dry Dock at A&P Southampton

Tuesday, December 10, 2002
Sun Cruises’ 22,945grt cruise liner, Sundream, has left A&P Southampton’s King George V Dry Dock after completion of a three-week dry dock and repair program. The 1,257 passenger, 1970-built vessel is a regular visitor to the port of Southampton and Harwich, but was its first visit to A&P. In addition to the usual general repairs, the program focused on extensive steel renewals to the vessel’s ballast and fuel tanks, upgrade and renewal of the sanitary pipe work systems, as well as the removal and overhaul of both stabilisers, and assistance with the partial installation of a new sprinkler system. David Parry, managing director of A&P Southampton Ltd is delighted with the outcome of the project. “Pre-docking planning was the key to our success on the Sundream. Numerous visits to the ship followed up by detailed reviews of the work to be undertaken enabled us to get off to a flying start when she arrived. The Ships’ technical team worked closely with the Yard to maintain momentum on the program and the ship sailed on time as a result.”
