ASRY Reports Prosperous 1999
Red Band's tanker Knock Dun was the 2,000th vessel to be repaired at ASRY.
ASRY's services were high in demand last year, as the yard reported a satisfac- tory performance for 1999, following the record volume of repairs seen in 1998.
A total of 114 vessels underwent repair work at ASRY — ranging from
ULCCs to offshore support vessels — 93 vessels were docked and 21 carried out afloat repairs. These figures come in slightly below 1998's total of 119 including 101 dockings — although the amount of vessels docking at ASRY for afloat repairs rose by 17 percent in 1999. With a 500,000-dwt capacity graving dock and two floating docks, occupancy averaged 89 percent — mar- ginally under the 92 percent average noted in 1998.
Securing a formidable portion of the international and local ship repair mar- ket this past year, 40 percent of the yard's customers were Arab owners, while a strong demand was seen in
Greece, Norway, India, Sweden and the
U.K. Giving the yard the most of its business last year was KOTC who brought five tankers into ASRY for work. NCC/Odtjell called upon the yard to repair four of its tankers, while Bakri
Navigation, The Shipping Corporation of India and UCO Marine utilized
ASRY for similar work on their respec- tive fleets.
Two significant repairs performed by the yard this past year were the 20-year life extension upgrade and repairs to 53,624-dwt LNG Norman Lady, and the first Special Survey and routine docking of 138,557-dwt tanker Knock Dun, which was noted as the 2,000th vessel to undergo work since the yard opened its doors in 1977. Norman Lady received major repairs to its five spherical cargo
