Damen Shiprepair Harlingen Completes Repair Project on Rederij Doeksen VLIELAND ferry

The VLIELAND required repair following a recent incident that took place as she was departing the harbour in Harlingen. As a result of the accident, the vessel’s SB engine room became flooded. DSHL carried out an emergency operation, closing the hole, before moving the vessel on to the yard for full repairs.

At the yard, DSHL carried out a series of works on the vessel, including the removal of the main- and auxiliary engines, the gearboxes and all electrical equipment and 4km wiring. Following this, the yard undertook the rebuilding of the engine room. This included re-installing the main and auxiliary engines.
