MT Bow Riyad

Dormac was contacted by the MT Bow Riyad regarding a small hole discovered in a ballast tank beneath a sounding pipe. Dormac provided a non-man entry cofferdam solution, which included a class-approved single side welded insert, together with a new striker plate in way of the damage. Upon approval, Dormac Steel and Diving teams mobilised and completed the repairs in record time.

The Vessel Algoa

Dormac, with the help of AESSEAL, used Belzona to repair the vessel Algoa back to its original state. The application method included a new deck plating bonded to the prepared deck with Belzona 1111, and filling the void between the old and new decks by injecting Belzona 1321 into the cavity. Once injected, the new surface of the deck was sealed and protected with Belzona 5811. The usage of this cold bonding technology proved to be a great success!

SA Agulhas II

Dormac Cape Town and AESSEAL Cape Town joined forces to resolve the pitting issue on the two bow thrusters of the SA Agulhas II, and get the global conservation and research icon fixed and back on its journey to the Antarctic.

MV Brahms Repairs

After a highly competitive bid, Dormac was entrusted with MV Brahms Repairs, which was suffering from damages to her Stern Tube. The vessel was trimmed and the propeller was removed before the intermediate and tail shafts were withdrawn, making way for the installation of the new machined white metal bearing. Dormac also proceeded to carry out a full scope check-up, along with the checking of the alignment and straightness of the shaft. 

Repairing The MV Julian

The MV JULIAN made contact with a loading appliance at the Bluff Coaling Terminal whilst being brought alongside the berth. After a highly competitive bid with other repairers, Dormac was awarded the job of getting her up and running again. The vessel was successfully repaired and ready to load her cargo in record time.
