Project MV Sir Charles Parsons and MV Lord Hinton
Date Commenced May 2008
Date Delivered May 2008

These high activity dockings were carried out in a very short period of time, giving the owner minimal downtime.

Both contracts suffered from delays due to the exceptional nature of the modifications required to the hatches post inspection. However, by working in close co-operation with the customer, the impact was kept to an absolute minimum.

The workscope included:

- Removal and upgrade of the hatch covers in the bottom of the dock under specially
  arranged cover
- Full blasting and hull painting
- Main Engine repairs
- Generator repairs
- Rudder alignment
- Accommodation upgrade
