SVS Guardsman – Successfully Docked at WAS

January 2022

SVS Guardsman was docked at the West Atlantic Shipyard in Nigeria during December 2021.

The main purpose was to facilitate her 5-year Special Survey docking and enable a comprehensive inspection by Class BV Nigeria.

This was successfully completed, and she is now back working in West Africa.

The docking enabled an opportunity for underwater work to be conducted that included shaft withdrawals/inspections, shaft seals replacement, bow thruster servicing, Thordon bearings replacement and the servicing of all underwater valves.

For Hull protection, four coats of international paint were applied which included two coats of Antifouling. All aluminum anodes were replaced, thickness gauging of the hull was conducted as per IACS regulations. A small area of diminished hull plate was observed during the inspection which was cropped out and replaced with Class certified plate by the shipyard.

All deck equipment was checked and serviced including the Anchor winch and chain.

The successful docking will enable the vessel to continue with her tasking until her next scheduled docking in thirty months’ time.
