Qatar's N-KOM scores new clients in Far East
N-KOM shipyard in Qatar has seen a healthy stream of enquiries from Far-Eastern shipowners/managers and completed several repair projects in the first few months of 2015.
Among the new clients from the Far East are Singapore’s Odfjell Asia, India’s Synergy Maritime and Hong Kong’s Fareast Shipmanagement.
In for its third special survey, Fareast Shipmanagement’s RINA-class LPG carrier Gas Commerce underwent routine drydocking repairs such as the overhauling of main engine units, renewal of stern tube seal and chrome liners, and steel renewal for its ballast tanks.
Steel was also renewed at various locations on the main deck and the vessels underwent hull treatment and coating works as well as inspection of the vessel’s lifesaving and fire-fighting equipment.
Synergy Maritime’s 61,358 dwt bulk carrier Ikan Sembak was the first Indian bulk carrier to be serviced at N-KOM. She underwent routine drydocking repairs including blasting work for the cargo hold and repairs to the cargo grabs, as well as extensive hull treatment and coating work.
Both vessels were delivered on schedule with zero LTIs. “I am very satisfied with the ease of communication with the project team. N-KOM is definitely one of the better yard I have worked with in this region,” said Daniel Christopher, superintendent, Synergy Maritime.
