Damen Repairs Van Oord’s Two Split Hopper Barges

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen recently completed a broad scope of maintenance and repair works on the Van Oord-owned Split Hopper Barges Jan Blanken and Jan Leeghwater.

The vessels, both with 2,853 m³ hopper capacity, left the yard on schedule just 10 days after arrival.

Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen Project Manager Ron Brusket sums up the projects neatly: “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.”

For example, all the ships’ systems needed to be checked and bought back up to speed where necessary. Minor steel works and touch-up painting were also required on both vessels. “We also renewed numerous sections of the hopper seals and removed the existing wooden main deck coaming,” added Brusket.

Damen handled the two sister vessels in its floating dock which, with its 229-meter length and 23,000-tonne lifting capacity, was more than able to accommodate the pair.
