The work took place in Damen’s shipyard in Schiedam over a period of 28 days and was covering 15,000sqm over two 14 day stints in dock for both vessels. JMS spent considerable effort cost engineering the project from an early stage whilst working closely with Stena Line and PPG to ensure that the budget was adhered to using innovative solutions and all within the agreed cost.
The rapid production of our preparation coupled with the experienced installation of high-quality paint meant the project could be turned around in a short timeframe. JMS provided skilled dedicated tradesmen & experienced on-site project managers that could find solutions to any arising issues.
Superior project management is part of JMS company ethos. For this project, the groundwork started early, working closely with our client and suppliers to ensure detailed planning took place early on to get an accurate scope of the work needed across the two ships and how each one’s needs differed.
The large-scale refurbishment across the two ships had not been without its challenges, with January being quite an unpredictable month of weather in Holland and weather ranging in and out of specification from rain to freezing temperatures. Works had to be efficient and co-ordinated to ensure the weather caused minimal downtime - It also helps bringing our jet surface dryer when it does rain!
