Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen, part of Damen Shipyards Group, has completed maintenance and repair work on two vessels, Split Hopper Barges Jan Blanken and Jan Leeghwater, owned by Van Oord.

As part of the repair work, all the ships’ systems were checked and bought back up to speed when required.

Additionally, minor steel works and touch-up painting was performed on both vessels.

"The repair work for both vessels was completed ten days after their arrival at the shipyard."

The repair work for both vessels, each with a 2,853m³ hopper capacity, was completed ten days after their arrival at the shipyard.

Featuring a length of 229m anda  23,000t lifting capacity, both the vessels have been repaired at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen’s floating dock, which is equipped with a 175m dry dock, a 215m covered drydock, and three lay-by berths.

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen project manager Ron Brusket said: “There were no major repairs to be carried out; it was rather a case of completing quite a lot of relatively small jobs to get them both ready for action again.”

In a separate development, Damen Shipyards Group has entered into a sales agreement with the Netherlands-based exhaust gas scrubber producer AEC Maritime.

With the deal, Damen will be able to provide AEC's low maintenance and IMO-certified exhaust gas scrubber technologies to the shipowners.
