Maersk, one of the world’s largest container shipping company, called CTS Offshore and Marine after one of its vessels was grounded in the Suez Canal which caused huge deformation on the bottom plates, frames and bottom longitudinal to the length of 60 meters.
Tanks affected NO 4, No 3 double bottom and Void Space. 20 MT of steel needed to be replaced in way of the frames and bottom longitudinal.
CTS Offshore and Marine were given one days’ notice to deploy 10 men team to do the repairs. Needless to say, the team required highly skilled workers in order to achieve the project safely and within target dates set by the owners.
