PaxOcean in SIngapore have successfully completed a retrofit project for a Norwegian owner, with the installation of the Optimarin USCG type approved Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) on the vessel Clipper Hebe from Solvang ASA.

After arriving in May 2017, the 154.95m LOA, 22.7m beam LPG Carrier underwent drydocking and survey, hull blasting and coating, electrical motors repairs, thrusters and CPP overhaul, as well as renewal of pipes and insulation concurrently with the BWTS retrofit work.

“Although it is a challenging project due to the space constraints and extensive scope of work, we are very happy that PaxOcean Shipyard delivered on time with good quality and service” said Øystein Brekke, Technical Superintendent of Solvang ASA.

PaxOcean Shipyard continues to provide solutions to meet owner’s requirements with capabilities for 3D scanning, engineering, fabrication and installation of BWTS.
