Ship Survey Repair & Refit
Case Type: Ship Repair, Survey & Refit

LOA: 29 m

Tonnage: 650 t

Project Duration: 30 days

Project Background:
The PB Katea is an ocean-going tug. As part of her scheduled maintenance programme, she came to Aimex Service Group for planned slipping. We worked closely with the client’s Marine Superintendent throughout.

Project Scope:

  • Full out-of-water survey, including shafts, valves and general repairs
  • Change of fendering system on the stern

Project Outcome:
The client was so impressed with the work completed, employee input and standard of service that they took the time to write a letter of thanks and recommendation – extract below:

“May I say how pleased we were with the level of service and expertise of the staff at Aimex during the slipping of PB Katea. You are fortunate indeed to have a wealth of experience in the staff you employ, something which pays dividends when sorting out the inevitable problems and issues which arise during the repair and maintenance of a vessel.

The process for us was extremely straightforward and the friendly and helpful atmosphere right through your organization made the whole job painless. You have a great bunch of people there, who went out of their way to assist us. We greatly appreciate your support and will recommend your organization to others who are looking for an honest and reliable engineering firm”.
