August 7 - Mighty Servant 3 has rejoined the Dockwise fleet having been undergoing repairs and reparation at the Grand Bahama Shipyard since January 2008.
The entire vessel has been rebuilt beginning with the steel hull. New machinery, electrical systems and equipment have been installed to the latest standards and designs.
Eugène van Dodeweerd, Dockwise Shipping's manager fleet supervision quality & safety believes that no one has ever taken a vessel submerged in 50 metres of seawater for five months and brought it back to service, making this project unique.
The two Wärtsilä (W12V38A) engines were extracted from the vessel locally, fully dismantled and later shipped in parts to Wärtsilä Netherland's workshop in Zwolle.
The accommodations block was extended by inserting an additional layer to accommodate up to 50 persons including crew members, visiting clients and personnel. Additionally all interior elements have been renewed and updated to the most modern standards.
"Mighty Servant 3 will be available to serve customers to the highest operational and safety standards for transport, installation and logistical management projects in the future. The return of this vessel to the fleet is a turning point in reinstatement history." André Goedée, Dockwise Ltd CEO.
