Oman Drydock and DSME team up to provide LNG repair service

Oman Drydock and DSME team up to provide LNG repair service
Oman Drydock Company (ODC) and Daewoo Shipbuilding and Maritime Engineering (DSME) wll launch a partnership to repair LNG carriers at Posidonia 2014.

The service will provide cargo containment system repairs and replacement of various components such as insulation boxes, membranes, prefabricated panels and cryogenic safety valves, at ODC’s 1.3m sq m shipyard in Duqm.

“We are also investing in new facilities including renovating our cryogenic shop so it can cater to repairing up to four LNGCs at any one time,” said ODC chief executive Yong Duk Park.

“Working with DSME we believe we have developed one of the most advanced LNG repair packages in the world. Our expansion into LNGC will further be strengthened by our new license to support the French engineering firm Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) which specialises in cargo containment systems for high-end LNG carriers.”

The companies intend to announce their partnership at the Posidonia maritime show in June. “We are very excited about marketing this new package and welcome visitors to our stand to hear about our plans,” said Park.
