Repairs in progress after a collision caused considerable damage to the hull. Scaffolding provides access to the damaged areas.
The damaged hull plating and the internals are being cropped. On the right hand side of the left scaffolding, part of a web frame is still visible which got heavily deformed in the collision.
Eventually, all affected plating is cropped and replaced.
Often for such repairs, a repair tender is sent to various shipyards. In consultation with owners, the most efficient repair yard is chosen for the job. While repairs are in progress, surveys are performed to verify if the work is carried out in compliance with agreements and to evaluate final repair costs.
