The Gardenia Seaways is the second of newly constructed vessels by Flensburger shipyard for DFDS in 2017 that JMS have had the pleasure of working on. The project was completed in the vessel’s short lay-over in Vlaardingen, Saturday 11:30am start – 12pm Sunday working hours.
Because of this short turnaround the client chose a turn-key solution in JMS to prepare the decks sufficiently and apply a new anti-slip surface. Drawings were constructed beforehand with onsite operatives adhering to specification and client’s budget. JMS had to ensure normal operations were not interrupted, so operatives were on standby and as soon as the vessel had finished unloading our works commenced.
The anti-skid coating was completed that day to the various areas to ensure the newly coated areas received a full overnight cure in the dropping temperatures before trafficking. These areas were then swept for any loose aggregates and surrounding perimeters cleaned the following morning. Finishing well before scheduled loading again of the vessel.
JMS Lincoln are proud to have finished the Gardenia Seaways resurfacing in the vessels very short lay-over. 200m2 of anti-skid safety surfacing was installed on various areas around the vessel providing a new practical safe option for all drivers transporting cargo on a regular basis.
