Welcome to the SD Independent

Although a nice sunny day, the wind was blowing quite considerably when we welcomed Serco’s SD Independent into dry dock, ready for some scheduled maintenance

Due to the recent storms, we weren’t 100% sure if she would make it but thankfully, she arrived safely and on time

Extra care was required for the lift, to ensure there weren’t any surprises with sudden gusts of wind and as a result, everything went to plan

Here’s a short video of the vessel arriving, along with the subsequent lift

May the work commence!!!

More updates following a fantastic paint job…

Another Cemex Testimonial

What others say about you, means so much more than what you say about yourself…

Following a recent urgent breakdown with one of Cemex’s vessels, ‘the Sand Falcon’, IME engineers attended and resolved the issue quickly and efficiently

Here’s what Ben Manfield had to say about our recent service…

1206(A) and 1207(A) Barges

Another project successfully completed

Work included:

– Lifting the barges out of the water and into the yard
– Erect scaffolding, cover with a net and HP wash the hull
– Survey (thickness test). Serco supplied their own engineer for this
– Carry out relevant repairs, subject to the survey (none in this occasion)
– Paint vessel as per spec
– Remove scaffolding, relaunch and ensure watertight integrity

There will be more work required on the two vessels in the future but for now, they’re back in the water, on time and on budget

Some end of trip reports from Cemex UK following recent works

IME provided a good service whilst the vessel underwent repairs to the unloader in Southampton. The team of Jarrett scaffolders who attended the vessel in Southampton were also particularly good

Both IME and Jarret returned to the vessel in Shoreham to effect repairs to the travel arm on the TCB and again provided a very good service

(Abstract Master)

As always, much appreciated high level of support received from shoreside contractors this trip, particularly CCBS and IME

(Abstract Chief Engineer)

On a personal note, as always, the support provided by both IME and CCBS is very much appreciated

SD Genevieve – Before and After Transformation

Marine Electrical and Engineering by the IME Group - SD Genevieve - Before and After Images

The I.M.E Group recently carried out a variety of marine electrical and engineering work on the SD Genevieve

This included:

– Renewal of aft end fendering

– Fitting of new anodes

– Extensive work on the engine and alternators

– General maintenance

– Electrical testing of critical apparatus

– Full painting

From a visual perspective, one of the most obvious transformations was to the hull

Another job successfully completed to the highest standards
