Damen Shiprepair Brest completes maintenance on LNG carrier Gaselys

Damen Shiprepair Brest (DSBr) has completed a renewal survey maintenance programme on the 290m LNG carrier, Gaselys. Co-owned by NYK Line of Japan and Engie (formerly GDF Suez), operated by Gazocean and chartered by Engie, the 10-year-old vessel came into DSBr for a regular periodical docking that included a full schedule of works. When she was launched in 2007, Gaselys and her sister ship, Provalys, were the largest LNG carriers ever built, and they are still among the largest in operation anywhere in the world.

The maintenance programme included, among other tasks, servicing the cargo pumps, overboard valves, thrusters, mooring winches and the cargo cranes. Two of the main compensators were also replaced, the fans overhauled, and assistance given to the specialist subcontractors responsible for maintaining the low-duty/heavy-duty compressors. New insulation was fitted to areas of piping. Additional works included removing mud from the ballast tanks, and blasting and repainting the hull and superstructure. - April 2017
