The Cable Enterprise – a cable lay barge that belongs to the Prysmian Group
– was back in the northern Dutch seaport “Eemshaven” and again, the DTS
Waterfront Brigade was requested by Wagenborg to assist with an emergency
This time it was a 375 kg (!) heavy bow thruster grate that was demounted
by divers and then had to be removed from the water. It was a challenging
job to get the part up from underneath the ship. Then it was transported
to Surhuisterveen where the construction was repaired at Tec Metalworks.
The team worked late hours so that it could be mounted back on the ship
the following day, allowing the ship to leave per its schedule. Placing back
the grate was also quite a job though, where the divers lay in the water
for hours to get everything back in place properly. Under the supervision
of the captain, the final inspection was carried out. Then the ship could
leave the port and pursue its activities.
The level of service that DTS and Tec Metalworks have provided was
greatly appreciated. The captain was under enormous pressure because
the ship could not leave without the grate. The Cable Enterprise was
depending on our diving activities. He found it unprecedented how
we went above and beyond to get them back in operation, limiting the delay,
and we will certainly see the 6 to 7 ships that are deployed by this company
more often in our home port “Eemshaven”. These ships are not allowed to be
out on the sea if they have any defects – interrupting a job by cutting a cable
and going to a port for maintenance is a huge financial loss to the company.
Excellent service, as DTS has provided in recent days, is therefore indispensable
in this type of business.
