ASRY Repair Updates
ASRY issued a statement detailing the yard's recent operational and business developments.
After appointing Resolute Maritime Services as the agents in Greece an increased activity from Greek market can be observed at ASRY including one of the leading owners from Greece, Maran Tankers Management, sending their VLCC for docking in ASRY. Apart from routine drydocking jobs and hull treatment the main job was the installation of owner-supplied Becker Mewis Duct. This is the 12th duct ASRY has installed, and second on a VLCC, which only required a record 10 days for complete installation, proving their proficiency in that field. May also saw the extensive dry-docking repairs of Singapore-owned Offshore Supply/Tug ‘Jaya Concordia’, including an installation of Tank Sounding System which is new mandatory requirement of Saudi Aramco. There was also a first time client in ASRY last month, as Germany’s International Tanker Management took their chemical/products tanker ‘H.C Dalia’ there and carried out the treatment in two of her ballast tanks. Also significant steel, mechanical and piping jobs were done during her stay at ASRY.
On the Offshore side at ASRY, four units are currently being repaired. Three from Saudi Aramco, one from Focus Energy in India. The Arabiyah 1, Arabiyah 3 and ARB-2 are all in for five-year surveys, steel work, and accommodation renewals. Meanwhile the Jupiter-1, which was previously stacked, is being reactivated and repaired.
Construction & Engineering
The third main division, Construction and Engineering, expanded their design and engineering services portfolio with design assessments for fitting large cranes on Saudi Aramco vessels, engineering the Tank Sounding System installed on Jaya Concordia and engineering the Camellia stainless steel pressure vessels to ASME Sec VIII Div 1, for construction at the yard. Also, the preinstallation engineering for Ballast water treatment installation using 3D scanning were carried out on two more KOTC ships off Fujiairah and Kuwait, thus completing 3D scanning on seven ships.
