Recent project: deck plating repair

  • A bollard was pulled off the deck plating while the vessel was under tow while departing from berth at the port of Vancouver.  

  • It was found that the existing deck construction could not provide the specified working load strength.  Repair and remediation done for port and starboard bollards.

  • The damaged bollard had to be removed and deck plating replaced.

  • Stiffeners were enhanced in order to bring the working load up to spec.

  • All work carried out under classification society's supervision.
