Client:  Scandic Shipmanagement
Project:  Modification of Golden Arrow – I
Project Year: 1995
Project Scope:
  • The vessel was shortened by 60 metres. This was accomplished by removing a mid-ships section thus allowing it to operate in ports subject to a length restriction. The shortening was achieved by dry-docking the vessel and making two parallel cuts across the vessel.
  • The key to the success of the operation was in the accurate measurements and markings. This was done by establishing control co-ordinates around the ship using theodolite and lasers. The measurements were cross-checked and monitored at all stages.
  • Intermittent flooding of the dock allowed the forward section to float freely and the mid-ships sections to be removed aside. The 100-metre width of Dock No. 2 allowed the scrap mid-ship section to float alongside the vessel.
  • Intermittent flooding of the dock allowed the forward section to float freely and the mid-ships sections to be removed aside. The 100-metre width of Dock No. 2 allowed the scrap mid-ship section to float alongside the vessel.
  • The bow and stern sections were rejoined, aligned and water was pumped out from dry-dock. The forward and aft sections of the ship were then welded together and the new piping and electrical systems completed the job.
  • In total, the vessel spent 28 days in the shipyard and sailed 4 days ahead of schedule.
