Vessel clean, inspect and recoat on North Sea installation


Stork was contracted to provide equipment and manning to clean, inspect and fully recoat vessels as required on a North Sea Installation.


Recognizing the clients’ needs Stork mobilized a team of 25 personnel who were fully trained technicians utilized UHP jets to remove existing internal coatings. The resulting waste was transferred to skips using 3” diaphragm pumps, ensuring no environmental spills. To prepare for optimum repairs and recoating, surfaces were dry blasted prior to the application of Corrocoat products, ensuring long term protection against corrosion.


Stork’s flexible approach to this contract and a strong relationship between both parties allowed the workscopes and strategies to be agreed and facilitated efficiently. Quality communication and meticulous planning ensured that the project was delivered with no time lost incidents or environmental spills within the allotted time frame.

“I would like to single out Stork’s crew for a special mention. Nothing is ever a problem for them. They are well supervised and can be trusted to deliver results in a safe and responsible manner. I would happily have them on any installation that I have responsibility for at any time.”
