Alewijnse Completes Electrical Repairs on Stornes

Monday, October 07, 2013

Alewijnse Marine Systems performed electrical repairs and modifications on the flexible fallpipe vessel Stornes within a challenging timeframe. The vessel has left Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen after just three weeks of repairs, modifications and the commissioning of its electrical systems by a team of 40 Alewijnse technicians.

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen subcontracted the electrical repairs and modifications to long-standing partner Alewijnse Marine Systems, which has a permanent representation at the shipyard. With just a three-week window in which to complete the project, Alewijnse assembled a forty-strong team of technicians to ensure that the work was completed on time and to specification.

Due to wear in the course of its offshore activities the Stornes required repairs and maintenance at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen. The flexible fallpipe vessel is used for the protection and stabilization of offshore structures through the targeted application of rock material to subsea installations.

In its role in the modifications, Alewijnse was required to work on a number of systems. These included air humidification systems, air compressors, engine room ventilation, watertight doors, emergency systems and an exchanging port side shaft generator. The systems are located in the accommodation rooms, engine room and cargo areas.

The Stornes (26,000Te) is owned by Van Oord Dredging and Marine Contractors B.V. It is the largest flexible fallpipe vessel in the Van Oord fleet, with a length of 175 meters and a width of 26 meters. It has been operational since late September 2011, alongside the two other ultra-modern flexible fallpipe vessels in the Van Oord fleet; the Nordnes (24,000Te) and the Tertnes (9,785Te). The vessels are used to install rock in water depths up to 2,200 meters.

This is Stornes’ second visit to the Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen. Alewijnse Marine Rotterdam was a partner on previous maintenance projects for both the Nordnes and HAM 602, as well as the Stornes.

Alewijnse looks forward to winning further major repair orders in the near future, due to its unique service and maintenance partnership with Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen and its strong relationship with Van Oord Dredging and Marine Contractors B.V
