Safe Caledonia welcomed !

One of the highlights of the previous year at Gdansk Shiprepair Yard "Remontowa" SA, was hosting and servicing four offshore rigs at a time, which made unique gathering, not to be seen at any Baltic repair yard ever before. Recently, the company has been busy with other kinds of ships working for offshore industry and another offshore platform again. This time it is an extensive modification and upgrade of semi-submersible accommodation and service platform.
The reason for the arrival of the Prosafe operated Safe Caledonia at Gdansk based yard on 29th of April, being towed by BB Troll AHTS is refurbishment that will not only enhance the vessel’s facilities as an accommodation rig, but will also extend the structural life time of the vessel with another 20 years. As explained by Mike Duddy, Project Manager, in the Prosafe's corporate magazine "Prosafe Now", the floatel Safe Caledonia comes to the Remontowa SA yard for a major refurbishment scheduled to take seven months, including sea trials.
After successful upgrades and conversions of four offshore platforms accomplished last year, with an accommodation unit (Safe Bristolia) and a jack – up (Safe Esbjerg) among them, Prosafe decided to have another accommodation rig rejuvenated entrusting the job to the Remontowa S.A.



"We are happy to work again with Remontowa having a good relationship after admirable performances from them during the stays of Safe Esbjerg and Safe Bristolia" - stated Mike Duddy, Project Manager, in the Prosafe's corporate magazine mentioned above.
The scope of work involves a wide range of capable yard's trades and departments.
The refurbishment of the Safe Caledonia will result in an "as good as new" rig, ready for 20 more years of operation on the UK Continental Shelf. With amongst others new diesel generators, boilers, cranes, helideck, lifeboats, heating and ventilation system, sewage plant and ballast water treatment system, the rig will not only be more cost-efficient and reliable, but also more environmentally friendly.
Within the last 10 years, Remontowa SA has serviced, repaired or upgraded 9 offshore platforms of various types (self-elevating units and semi-subs, accommodation and workshop, as well as drilling units). The shipyard is also active in other sectors of offshore market, performing such works as conversions of tankers into shuttle tankers with bow loading systems and to FPSO vessels, conversions of offshore support vessels (to diving support and other types / purposes), conversions and upgrades of seismic vessels, repairs and maintenance of any kind of offshore ships, etc.
