Seven Seas Navigator

Detailed planning enabled repair and upgrades of Seven Seas Navigator at Vancouver Drydock

"The last time the 30,000 dwt luxury vessel was docked was November 2009 at Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven, Germany. Mr Tinto commented, “The previous drydocking had shown that the keel was damaged and we were aware that 280 tonnes of pig iron ballast needed to be removed....

Overall, about 61 linear metres of keel was replaced. “Getting the right steel was a big issue as well,” Mr Tinto said. “It required high tensile steel which met Det Norske Veritas’ DH standards. Once we put new frames on it, we had to put the 280 tonnes of ballast back, so we used perma-ballast, a slurry mixture of iron ore and steel pellets."
