Project Description

CLIENT | Product Tanker Company

VESSEL | Oil Product Tanker

LOCATION | Greece – Gibraltar

DATE | March 2019


Execute an Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM) survey while sailing to eliminate downtime and also deliver a Repair Specification as per a CAP-1 rating.

The vessel was carrying British Navy cargo and had to adhere to a very strict and busy schedule which did not afford a lenient timeframe. The only period available was between Greece and Gibraltar when the cargo was only half-loaded so that the ballast tanks could be inspected.

We believe in offering all of our clients a reliable worldwide service and that is why our pool of technicians are ready to travel at any hour along with valid seaman books and Schengen visas.

The position of the vessel could only be known 8 hours prior (when it reached its last bunker point) which meant that booking flights and getting the best team available limited the client’s options, turning to CTS for our worldwide reach, local support and 24/7/365 availability teams that can be deployed anywhere around the world at short notice.

Scope of Works:

– UTM towards 3rd SS and preparation of repair specifications as per CAP1 rating.

Our co-ordination teams organised a riding squad of technicians within 10 hours, demonstrating our ability to be where you need us when you need us. Also, by leveraging our vast experience in quick turnaround projects we were able to deploy a strong time management strategy to finish the job on schedule to high standards and importantly, to the strictest of HSEQ regulations and practices.

The client was impressed with our professional work and recommended us to all colleagues to use our services in the future.
