Cathelco equipment for newbuilds at Remontowa

Cathelco are supplying equipment for a number of specialised vessels that are being built at Remontowa Shipbuilding in Gdansk.

The yard has received orders for five ice-classed container ships from Greenland’s Royal Arctic Line (RAL), which are to be delivered by mid-2015. One of the vessels, a 606teu container ship, will replace the Arina Arctica and act as a feeder between Denmark and Greenland as well as being used for special tasks in Antarctica. Cathelco are supplying an impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) system for the vessel to safeguard its hull against corrosion. The system has been designed to provide effective and reliable protection in Arctic waters where lower levels of salinity have important implications.

Another vessel on the Remontowa Shipbuilding order book is an anchor-handling tug/supply vessel (AHTS) which is being built for a Canadian owner to support the ExxonMobil fields off Newfoundland and Labrador. Cathelco are supplying an ICCP system to protect the hull against corrosion using their latest Quantum thyristor control panel. In addition, Cathelco are providing a seawater pipework anti-fouling system to protect seawater lines against blockages caused by barnacles and mussels. Cathelco equipment is also being supplied for a dynamically positioned cable lay vessel (CLV) which is being built for a Norwegian owner.
