Pipe repairs on cruise ship in Uruguay

Last month our diver/technicians carried out a pipe repair on a 238-meter cruise ship during her stop in Punta Del Este, Uruguay. The vessel was suffering a leak as a result of corrosion damage to a portside overboard pipe and a swift on-site solution was suggested by our technical department.

Due to the nature of the ship only a limited time frame was available during each stop. We looked at the schedule of the ship to find the best opportunity to perform the operation. The repairs were approved by the representative of the classification society who had been present during the operation.

Overboard pipe repairs are vital for a vessel because there is a direct connection between the outside hull and the pipes. This means that any damage to these can compromise the integrity of the hull. For this reason the classification society will very strictly monitor their condition and will demand a fast and thorough repair of the damage.

If this occurs we can offer a permanent afloat solution. Our teams bring a high standard of care and professionalism to any operation to guarantee that a ship can sail safely afterwards. This gives owners a cost effective alternative for drydock.
