Alewijnse to Refit Van Oord’s Nordnes

Alewijnse Marine Systems, a leading marine technology expert, is playing a significant role in a program of electrical repairs and modifications to the Nordnes, a modern flexible fallpipe vessel.

The vessel is owned by Van Oord, a leading contractor in dredging, marine engineering and offshore energy projects.

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen, part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, has been awarded the contract by Van Oord to refit the Nordnes.

The 166 meter vessel is used to position rock on the seabed for the protection and stabilization of offshore structures such as pipelines, cables and offshore platforms.

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen has subcontracted the electrical repairs and modifications to long-standing partner Alewijnse Marine Systems, which has a permanent presence at the shipyard. With just a five-week window in which to complete the project, Alewijnse has assembled a strong team of technicians to ensure that the work is completed on time and to specification.

The work is required due to wear in the course of its offshore activities. The two primary tasks for Alewijnse are to renew all the steelwork that supports the electrical cabling and the upgrading of the Cargo Control System. Other important electrical repairs include the modification of the crew mess and the overhaul of the navigation light mast. Alewijnse’s work on site has started in November and will be completed by mid- December 2014.

This order from Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen further reinforces the position that Alewijnse has developed in the offshore refit sector and demonstrates the wide range of skills and capabilities that the company can bring to projects of this complexity.
