Gibdock says it has completed its first shiprepair project for Tsakos Shipping & Trading, one of the leading owners within the Greek shipping market, on its 39,241 dwt, 2006-built 'Irene’s Rainbow'.

The scope of work undertaken alongside included steel hatch cover repairs, which consisted of the renewal of damaged top plate. In addition the yard carried out non-destructive testing, as required by Class, including Hatch Internal Stiffening and preservation works after the repairs.

The visit of the Irene’s Rainbow drew strong positive owner feedback, according to Gibdock’s Greek representative, Hellenic Industrial and Marine Agencies Managing Director Alkis Koukis. “This was the first Tsakos-owned vessel to be repaired in Gibraltar and the company has said that it would have no hesitation in using the yard again in the future. This could be the start of a long term relationship.”

Gibdock considers that its geographic location was a factor in the contract being awarded, but it was the yard’s professionalism that impressed the Greek owner, says Mr Koukis. “Our client wanted repairs to be carried out quickly and for the vessel to be redelivered on time. The workmanship was outstanding and Tsakos is already looking forward to the next cooperation.”
