When ship owners are in need of refitting, marine engineering, a reliable paint job or hull repair, Ship Repair in Whangarei Harbour is always one of the first names that comes to mind.
For the New owners of the Vessel Ocean Fresh, deciding who to trust to get the vessel primed for its challenging workload was easy. One of the first stages of the refurbishment was fabricating a new aft deck crane then installing this sturdy piece of machinery. Next came cropping and replacement of the deck plating throughout the aft deck area. After this, we carried out a modification to the rudder. This allowed a more efficient turning circle, with better steerage and improved headway – major factors with a vessel as long as the Ocean Fresh. The rudder modification is already saving the vessel’s operators time, money and hassle.
The next stage was to cut off the old transducer housings, then to manufacture and install new housings and transducers. By this time, the Ocean Fresh was ready to have the shaft assembly surveyed and modified. We machined a new propeller hub push rod section, fabricated two new generator beds and installed these in the vessel. The final pieces of work before we proudly sent the Ocean Fresh on her way were a full hull valve survey as well as a general tidy up of the topsides and underwater paint work.
