The 2013 built Shoalbuster 2709 GPS Avenger is being reactivated following a 21 month layup at Upnor. During July the vessel was towed to Rotterdam to be drydocked and bring all outstanding surveys up to date at the shipyard of Scheepswerf Grevenstein bv and at Dockside Ship Facilities BV. In effect this has amounted to undertaking over 90% of Special Survey 1 almost 12 months before the vessel becomes 5 years old. It is hoped that the GPS Avenger will return to service within July ’17.
See below PDF report (mainly photographs) and also the picture of the GPS Avenger completing surveys at Ridderkerk earlier today.
