Damen Shiprepair Brest (France) gets its first order to drydock large LNG carrier for repairs.

The Bonny Gas Transport-owned, 79,822 DWT ‘LNG SOKOTO’ has arrived at the yard for maintenance work, including drydocking.

Jos Goris, managing director of Damen Shiprepair Brest, says: “We are very pleased with this order and we expect more LNG vessel owners to follow. The yard’s workforce is experienced in repairing LNG vessels and it is good to see this business returning to Brest”.

The vessel is managed by London-based Shell International Trading & Shipping Company Ltd.

The biggest dry dock measures 420 x 80 metres and is one of the biggest in Europe, allowing the yard to accommodate almost any ship in the world.
