Muscat: Oman Drydock Company (ODC) will launch a new partnership targetting the LNG carrier repair market at next month’s Posidonia trade fair in Greece. The new package is being launched with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Company subsidiary DSEC.
ODC chief executive Yong Duk Park said: “Working with DSME, we believe we have developed one of the most advanced LNG repair packages in the world. Our new services will cover areas such as cargo containment systems and the supply chain of various materials such as INVAR, insulation boxes, membranes, prefabricated panels and cryogenic safety valves.”
He added: “We are also investing in new facilities, including renovating our cryogenic shop so it can cater to repairing up to four LNG carriers at any one time. Our expansion into LNG carriers will be strengthened by our new licence to support the French engineering firm Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT), which specialises in cargo containment systems for high-end LNG carriers.” [14/05/14]
