Ship Repair & Conversion

Irving Shipbuilding Repairs Wide Selection

Irving Shipbuilding's ship repair facilities in Nova

Scotia, Canada at Halifax Shipyard and Dartmouth

Marine Slips have been very active during the last few months.

The yard has attained a variety of work involving containerships, RoRos, OSVs, tugs and Government vessels. M/V Sanderling, M/V Caribou and M/V Fines were noted as receiving steelwork and blast and paint- ing, while AHTS and OSVs Hebron Sea, Riverton,

Tignish Sea, Highlander Sea and Venture Sea were scheduled for maintenance as well.

Halifax Shipyard recently undocked passenger RoRo ferry — Princess Acadia. Able to hold 650 passengers, the ferry had been at the yard for 15 days undergoing repairs on its funnel deck and had its CP propeller blades removed for inspection and change. Mainte- nance was also completed on the vessel's bow thruster and blast and paint was done on the car deck and out- side hull. During that time, valves were also inspected, as were most of the tanks in the vessel.
