Case Study - Tulipa Seaways

Vessel: Tulipa Seaways - DFDS Location: UK Port Lay-over Date: June 2018 Products: Bimagrip LS Anti-slip and Waterproofing System Acraprime & Emery Bauxite  JMS Lincoln were chosen to carry out the Bimagrip LS application to the existing Tulipa Seaways Stern Ramp. The work was dedicated to the stern ramp, arguably the most important area needed for safety surfacing. The project was completed in the vessel’s short lay-over in the UK, so time was of a premium. A total of 32 hours to be precise.   The Tulipa Seaways is a new vessel constructed by DFDS in Flensburger 2017. The previous application was applied incorrectly by an external contractor and had started to delaminate in certain areas causing a safety concern to cargo operations. Because of this reason the client chose a turn-key solution in JMS to reapply a new anti-slip surface, where preparation and experienced applicators can ensure a guarantee of efficient new surfacing.  JMS Lincoln had a limited time frame to complete the works to ensure normal operations were not interrupted, all operatives were on standby and as soon as the vessel had finished unloading all hands were on deck to start the removal process. The substrate was heated mechanically to start its initial disbondment before being removed by bobcats with scarper modified attachments. All waste and potential surface containments was removed before the whole area received captive blasting treatment to Swedish standard SA2.5. Then primed using a single component rust inhibiting solvent based polyurethane primer to protect the steel work from corrosion and to enhance the bond between the Bimagrip LS system and the deck. After the primer had fully cured and each individual flap and bridge plates were masked, Bimagrip LS was installed to the stern ramp, flaps, bridge plates, and other small defective areas that were agreed on site that needed new effective surfacing. The system for this project was chosen to be at 4.5kg/m2 resin loading for the task and was broadcast with 1-3mm Emery Bauxite aggregate to provide a robust and durable finish. After the anti-skid application was completed and the system had cured, all flap and bridge plate areas received two coats of epoxy paint to the borders of each individual section.   The project was a success. JMS Lincoln are proud to have finished the Tulipa Seaways resurfacing in the vessels very short lay-over. 250m2 of new safety surfacing was installed on various areas around the vessel providing a new practical safe option for all drivers transporting cargo on a regular basis. JMS pride ourselves on our turn-key ability to work to the marine industries ever tight and changing schedules, we never turn down a challenge by careful planning, thorough preparation and skill of operatives.  Be the best and do it right first time.
