Strathdee docked at Aberdeen for 14 days
In April, Strathdee dry docked in Aberdeen to have similar work done as its sister vessel Strathdon, which docked at Garvel in late 2015. Spending over 14 days in dock, the 33m long tug underwent a full hull wash, preparation and paintwork, and had its sacrificial hull anodes were removed and renewed. Various repairs were carried out to the ships side belting and fendering, and a full service was required for the z-peller.
Dales Marine removed the unit for inspection, and oil changed the coolers. Its seals were changed and the z-peller was reassembled and reinstated to the vessel. On completion, the tanks were cleaned, inspected and painted, and minor repairs were carried out to the main exhaust stacks, along with internal galley modifications and electrical work. After 14 days, Strathdee left Aberdeen and returned back to North Scotland to continue rig moves on the Moray Firth.
