LOCATION: Skagen – Denmark
PBP Services were contracted to carry out works on the Irish pelagic ship Aine in Skagen, Denmark to fully repaint and carry out preperation and coating works in the RSW tanks.
The RSW tanks were spot blasted and floors vacuum blasted in order to minimise on large scale clean up and disposal costs of grit. Vacum blast equipment re use of steel grit over and over in order to minimise in waste. Once this was done the tanks were recoated using certified tank coating paints. The vessel was also spot blasted inboard and mechanical prepared to remove all corrosion in order to receive 2 full coats of 2 pack anti corrosive primer followed by a full coat of 2 pack high build base coats before receiving the 4th coat of 2 pack pollyurethene top coat from top of masts to waterline.
The underwater hull was pressure washed down before receiving spot primers and fully coating with anti fouling paint. The outer hull was also fully sanded prepared base coated and new shade of red colour applied as requested by the new owners from Sweden where Aine will be sold to following delivery of the new Aine which is currently being built in Skagen.
The owners and crew of Aine as well as the new Swedish owners oversaw the works carried out over a 6 week period and were absolutely delighted with the quality and standard of finish supplied by the experienced and dedicated team of ships painters supplied and supervised by owner’s son Jonathan Bruce. On completion of Aine PBP went straight onto next project which received identical type of works on the 74metre Shetland Pelagic Trawler Altaire also in Skagen, Denmark.
