Cable layer “Ile de re” – Dec 2015 / Jan 2016

Project consisted of installing an A Frame on the vessel’s back deck as part of her conversion from Cable repairer to Cable layer under high time constraint and Bureau Veritas Classification Society control.

The challenges were:

  • Adapting prefabricated components to match the vessel’s structural deformations.
  • Running the job 24/7 over 45 days including Xmas and NY
  • Meeting customer’s deadlines and budget

The targets were successfully achieved by using laser site measurement to work out the extent of deformation and tradesmen highly skilled in ship repair working 24/7 through Christmas and New Year with “0” Health and Safety Incident.

Aimecs brought innovative technical solutions and flying a team to complete the work overseas

The job was carried out timely and within budget, at ship-owner (Louis Dreyfus Armateurs) and charterers (Alcatel Lucent) satisfaction. It demonstrated that the Company could economically carry highly technical ship repair in NZ.

M/T Kakariki – Apr / August 2016

The project works included completing pipe works in ballast tanks and double bottom . Pipe were cropped and replaced in confined space. Due to access restrictions the new pipe was prefabricated in short sections and fully welded on site.

All works were completed during a vessel maintenance stop at Auckland Harbour. We completed the works over 2 x 13 tradesmen shifts , which worked 24/7 and achieved zero  LTI’s.

The second part of the assignment was replacing a 9×3 m hull plate section with internal structure. The plate was fitted in 1 piece after being adapted to the vessel’s hull actual deformation.

Again the project was completed during a vessel maintenance stop at Auckland Harbour by 2 x 14 tradesmen shifts , which worked 24/7 and achieved zero  LTI’s.

Hot work jobs were carried in confined spaces, on an oil tanker partially filled with product in Auckland’s Wineyard quarter. Hazard assessment and monitoring were critical for on-board and neighborhood safety and protection of the environment.
