PREPARING THE VESSEL FOR THE NEXT 30MONTHS

COST

DRYDOCKING SUCCESS FACTORS


KNOWING THE VESSEL GOOD AND COMPLETE SPECIFICATION PLANNING CONTROLLING THE YARD ADEQUATE RESOURCES

DRYDOCKING THE SUCCESSFULL DD

THE SPECIFICATION TO COVER BETWEEN 80-90% OF ALL WORK

NO MAJOR EXTRA COST


WITHIN THE STIPULATED TIME AND ESTIMATED COST

DRYDOCKING PREPARATION FOR ENTRY


VESSEL TO BE FREE FOR HOT WORK AND ENCLOSED PLACES TO BE VENTILATED AS REQUIRED. BUNKERS / F.WATER / BALLAST ETC. BE SUITABLY DISTRIBUTED TO ACHIEVE SUGGESTED TRIM.
WORKS IN SPECIFICATION IDENTIFIED / MARKED. SUPERVISION DUTIES DECIDED AND AGREED TO.

DRYDOCKING SURVEYS
A LIST OF ALL ITEMS TO BE SURVEYED IS KEPT READY. LIST OF ALL CERTIFICATES EXPIRING IS READY.

LIST OF CONDITIONS OF CLASS TO BE DEALT WITH IS CLEAR.


LIST OF NEW APPLICABLE REGULATIONS TO BE ATTENDED TO IS AVAILABLE. MODIFICATIONS /FABRICATIONS IF ANY AS PER NEW REGULATIONS SHOULD ALREADY BE IN THE SCOPE OF REPAIRS. LIASE WITH THE SURVEYOR AND AGREE ON THE SCOPE OF INSPECTIONS / DURATION OF INSPECTIONS.

TO KEEP SURVEYOR INFORMED ABOUTTHE DOCKING SURVEYS AND GET A LIST OF RECOMMENDATIONS AT THE EARLIEST FOR COMPLETION OF STATUTORY CERTIFICATES.
GET SURVEYORS APPROVAL FOR THE SCOPE OF REPAIRS INVOLVING CLASS.

PRE DOCKING SURVEYS


GET THE GAUGING REPORTS VERIFIED AND ESTABLISH THE SCOPE OF STEEL REPAIRS.
AGREE WITH SURVEYORS ACTION PLAN FOR CREDITING OF CARGO /BALLAST TANKS FOR(INTERMEDIATE/SPECIAL) SURVEYS. AGREE ON TESTING PROCEDURES / REPAIR PROCEDURES IF ANY AND PRESS TEST OF TANKS AS PER REQUIREMENTS. IT IS ADVANTAGEOUS TO PLAN TO CREDIT ALL TANKS PRIOR TO DOCKING ,THE TRADING PATTERN PERMITTING. TO CREDIT MAX POSSIBLE CSM ITEMS PRIOR TO DOCKING.

DRYDOCK WORK SCHEDULE


SHIP STAFF AND YARD JOBS ARE CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD / PLANNED AND CARRIED OUT WITHOUT INTERFERANCE.

YARD JOBS (INPROCESS AND COMPLETION AND TESTING) ARE PROPERLY SUPERVISED.
SPARES SUPPLIED TO YARD BY VESSEL / ARRIVAL OF NEW SPARES ETC. ARE PROPERLY RECORDED AND MONITORED. DECISION MAKINGS ARE PROPERLY DELEGATED. ONBOARD TIMINGS ARE SUITABLY ALTERED TO GET MAX PRODUCTIVITY. SHIPBOARD MEETINGS ARE PROPERLY TIMED TO CONTINOUSLY MONITOR THE SITUATION. REPAIR TEAMS IF ANY ARE TO BE PROPERLY UTILISED AND EFFECTIVELY MONITORED.

DRY DOCKING SAFETY


SAFETY MEETINGS INVOLVING YARD AND SHIP STAFF TO BE PROPERLY TIMED AND WELL ATTENDED. VIOLATION OF YARD GUIDELINES ARE TO BE STRICTLY DISCOURAGED (HOTWORK IN ENGINE ROOM ETC.) TANK ENTRIES ETC. ARE TO BE DONE STRICTLY ACCORDING TO PROCEDURES AND PERSONNEL TO BE DOUBLY CAREFUL WHILE CLOSING OPENINGS. IMPORTANCE TO BE GIVEN TO ATTIRE. EXTREME CARE TO BE EXERCISED WHILE TURNING ENGINES/OPERATING STEERING GEAR/STARTING BLOWERS/SWITCHING ON ELECTRICAL BREAKERS/PRIOR TRIALS ETC. SYSTEMS ARE TO BE PROPERLY DEACTIVATED AND RENDERED SAFE (DEPRESSURISE HYDRAULIC LINES/EMPTY OIL LINES/DRAIN SEA WATER LINES ETC). BOUNDARIES OF FUEL OIL TANKS ARE PROPERLY MARKED. THE TANK DRAIN PLUGS ARE PROPERLY MARKEDIIDENTIFIED. AND PROTECTED FROM INADVERTANT OPENING. FRAME NOS ARE SUITABLY MARKED ON DECK/SIDES AND BOTTOM. VENT PIPES ARE SUITABLY MARKED/IDENTIFIED.

DRYDOCKING ECONOMY
THE FOLLOWING TO BE BORNE IN MIND: REPAIRS DONE THROUGH AFLOAT WORKSHOPS ARE ALWAYS CHEAPER MOST OF THE SPECIALIZED JOBS ARE DONE THRU SUBCONTRACTORS OR REPRESENTATIVES OF OEMS WITH A SURCHARGE. A REPAIR TEAM WILL ALWAYS BE CHEAPER IF THE MATERIALS CAN BE ORGANIZED CHEAPLY. YOU WILL LOOSE A FORTUNE IF YOU NEED TO DO TANK CLEANING INSIDE A YARD. ALL ADDITIONAL WORK WILL BE CHARGED AT A VERY HIGH RATE. THE SMALLER THE FABRICATION JOBS/STEEL JOBS ON DECK--THE MORE UNECONOMICAL IT BECOMES QUANTITIES OF STEEL WORK/PIPE WORK/HULL PAINTING ETC ARE TO BE DETERMINED WITH RESPECT TO CONDITIONS IN TARIFF LIKE MINIMUM KGS PER LOCATION MINIMUM METERS PER LOCATION. CHARGES FOR INWAY AND ACCESS WORK MINIMUM SURFACE (BLASTING) MINIMUM NO OF POINTS PER LOCATION(GAUGING)

IT WOULD BE COST EFFECTIVE TO TAKE A QUOTE FOR THE FOLLOWING:- UNSHIPMENT OF RUDDER - RENEWAL OF CARRIER BEARING WITH YARD MATERIAL - RENEWAL OF PINTLE BEARING WITH YARD MATERIAL - PIPES(METER BASIS) /TESTING OF WELDS(METER BASIS) / SUPPLY OF SKILLED AND UNSKILLED MANPOWER (HOURLY BASIS)/ MAGNAFLUX / RADIOGRAPHY AND OTHER TESTS / STAGING (TOWER AND BLOCK/BUILDUP OF PITS/REWELD BOTTOM PLATES BEST ECONOMY IS AN OUTCOME OF A TIGHT SPECIFICATION

DRYDOCKING TECHNICAL CORROSION PROTECTION


ANODES
- CHOICE OF THE CORRECT TYPE AND QUANTITY OF ANODES.
- REPLENISHING OF ELECTRODES FOR IMPRESSED CURRENT SYSTEMS IF FITTED. - PROTECTION OF ANODES WHILE PAINTING - CORRECT PLACING OF ANODES UNDER GUIDANCE FROM SUPPLIER. - REMOVAL OF OLD ANODES

CORROSION PROTECTION LIFE OF THE VESSEL AND FUTURE EXPENDITURE DEPEND ON THE QUALITY OF WORK DONE IN EVERY DOCKING.

GET PROPER ADVICE FROM LEADING PAINT MANUFACTURER AND GET AN IDEAL SCHEME
ADVISABLE TO GO FOR THE BEST SURFACE PREPARATION AND CHOOSE REAL GOOD PAINT(TYPE COMPATABLE WITH PREVIOUS PAINT) PROCESS INCLUDE--H.P WASHING /FLOGGING/GRIT BLASTING (S.A 1/2/2.5) OR HYDRO BLASTING/GRIT SWEEPING/PRIMER COAT(2 OR 3 TOUCH UP COATS FOLLOWED BY 1 OR 2 FULL COATS)AS PER RECOMMENDED MICRON THICKNESS / STRIPE COATS (ON DECK) IMPORTANT ASPECTS ARE--PROPER SURFACE PREPARATION AND CONTROL ON HUMUDITY.
