L&C Associates Completes Deactivation Of M / V Cape Inscription

L&C Associates, Inc. recently announced the completion of a dehumidification and sealing system aboard the M/V Cape Inscription.

The RO/RO is being dehumidified to protect it from corrosion while laid-up in Mobile, Ala.

Most notable to the installation is the use of the Protective Sealing System (PSS) to seal openings leading to the dehumidified spaces. PSS is a spray-applied, semi-adhering, flexible, vinyl plastic which prevents moisture from migrating into the dehumidified spaces. Since PSS is strippable, the vessel can be reactivated quickly, a key requirement of the lay-up specification.

L&C technicians repaired and balanced the existing desiccant dehumidification system and reinstalled the ducting which distributes the dehumidified air. In addition, L&C conducted tests to verify that the d/h system will maintain the required relative humidity.

Dehumidified areas include: engine space, accommodations, steering gear, cranes, C02 room, anchor windlass and bow thruster.
