Damen Shiprepair Brest completed a two-week maintenance program on the 290-metre, LNG carrier GDF Suez Point Fortin.

The works took place in the second half of May and included a full, in-water survey conducted by divers, changing of the mooring cables from wire to rope, and full class surveys carried out on the main boilers.

A radar dome was also replaced, Damen Shiprepair Brest said on Tuesday.

As of June, the GDF Suez Point Fortin, with the capacity to transport 154,200 cubic meters of LNG was back at sea and fully operational.

The vessel, owned by a consortium led by Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) and operated by MOL for Engie under a twenty-year charter agreement, was delivered in February 2010.
