The repair of the mv Helge (flying the Dutch flag), which was collided in September last year, is progressing according to plan. The steel repairs are 80% complete. The steel repairs of the wheelhouse including the bridge wing, repair of the boat deck and the accommodation and the repair of the side tanks plus the bilge have been fully repaired and restored to their original (new-built) condition.
The ship has been in the dock for a period of approximately 7 weeks where the underwater repairs and work have taken place. They are currently working on repairing the last part of the steel damage, the repair of that transom and hull on the starboard side. The ship is currently still at the dock location, but will soon shift to the inside dike location of the yard, where she will be completed.
The plan is that the ship can go on sea trials in June, after which it can be delivered to the owner.
