 LPG Carrier 'Oriental Oki' for drydock repairs


The LPG Carrier Oriental Oki managed by Kyowa Sansho Co. Ltd Japan called for routine drydock repairs during early July at the Colombo Dockyard PLC.

The 2006 built gas tanker called for first drydocking. The repair scope consisted surface preparation and coating, overhauling of generators, main engine inspection, shaft seal vulcanising, steel renewal/strengthening of touch area and repairs to both hose handling cranes.

The entire repair was completed successfully in seven days and the repairs were carried out in keeping with the requirements of Nippon Kaiji Kyokai. (NKK).

The attending superintendent T. Nishibayashi looked after the owner's interests during this call.

Colombo's faster turn around time and her strategic location and high service quality are some of the major aspects that attract many international ship owners to Sri Lanka. Husbanding work for this operation was handled by the local agents McLarens Shipping Ltd.
