Three Vessels In One Go

Parallel Dockings In Dubai Maritime City Provides Efficient Repair Solution For Red Sea Marine Services

Three Red Sea Marine Services offshore vessels, ANSAR 4, ANSAR 6 and ANSAR 13, all 6 year old crew & security vessels on charter for a Middle East Oil Major, required a special survey and maintenance / repair. Additionally, the ANSAR 13 required emergency repairs to propellers, shafts and gear boxes.

After reviewing the docking specifications Goltens recommended docking all the three vessels simultaneously with a 1 week time span between each vessel. Having the vessels side by side would allow an optimum utilization of specialist resources and equipment and save both time and cost. For the vessel owners this would also be convenient from a management and overseeing point of view (ref pictures to the right).
