PHOTO: Damen Wraps Up Flintstone Repair and Maintenance

The fallpipe vessel Flintstone has departed Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam (DSAm) following a six-week programme of maintenance and repairs.

The Flintstone, owned and operated by the Tideway group of companies, spent a total of 28 days in drydock at DSAm. According to the company, out of the many repair and maintenance activities that took place, the most complex was the refurbishment of the moon pool doors.

Other activities included the overhaul of all the thrusters together with the forward anchor winches and a wide range of other tasks relating to the water lines, fall pipes, ROV transport and storage, and other equipment.

While in DSAm the Huisman crane and tower were overhauled by the manufacturer.

Project manager Arnold Bregman said, “This was a very challenging project given the extent of additional works that became apparent as we progressed. However, Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam was the ideal location for this with all the necessary facilities available on site. We were also able to allocate additional manpower and schedule extra shifts. That, together with excellent communication and cooperation between all the parties concerned, ensured that we were able to complete our part of the project within the original time specified.”

Bas Peeters, Vessel Manager at Tideway, added: “Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam provided us with the skills, cooperation and flexibility that we seek in a repair yard for a vessel like Flintstone.”
