Atlantic Marine Repairs Cruise Ship

August 26, 1999

Royal Caribbean's Monarch of the Seas spent three months in drydock Alabama, at Atlantic Marine's Mobile, Ala. facility, earlier this year. The vessel required approximately 460 tons of bottom shell plating and internals to be replaced as a result of a grounding. Atlantic's hull and production departments were able to average more than 7.3 tons of steel renewals per day, in spite of the requirement to clean and gas-free some 114 compartments and tanks. Initially, Atlantic Marine had guaranteed an average of six tons of hull renewals per day, based on approcimately 350 tons of steel and four compartments and tanks to be cleaned and gas-freed. With the increase of the initial work scope, Atlantic Marine required only three additional days in drydock. As a result of compartment flooding, more than 18 miles of electrical wiring and numerous motors required replacement. Mechanical renewals and overhauls had to be affected. The cleaning and painting of the hull from keel to the boat deck and tank coatings were also accomplished furing the drydock period. Miscellaneous inspections, preservations and repairs were also accomplished during this out-of-service period.
