Earlier this week, a large Suezmax tanker arrived at our deep water private repair berth in the Port of Antwerp. During her pitstop we overhaul the steering gear and replace the entire set of steering gear rams. Through skylight access all equipment and parts were removed and subsequently replaced.
Parallel EDR Antwerp Shipyard is installing IoT equipment such as advanced camera assistance for the Officer on Watch. The ORCA system is an intelligent collision avoidance system and increases visibility during navigation during watchkeeping.
The cooperation between our Spare Parts Distribution department and technical execution on board limits the project time to 5 days.
With all drydocks booked for the next weeks, the EDR Antwerp Shipyard team will occupied with all type of drydocking projects.
