BayMarine were asked to clean and recoat the Adonia’s ballast tanks in service, the tank had been contaminated with HFO due to a burst pipe.
The coating in the tank was also in need of repair and was contributing to the problem. The tank was sprayed with grease master and freshwater washed to remove the oil residue deep into steel substrates, then we high pressure blasted at 500 bar (8000psi) to W J 3 standard.
The Chemco RS500P system was chosen for the project. BayMarine and Chemco have over the years completed many projects both at service and at port worldwide and would again prove itself for this type of application in service.
It is solvent free, odourless and can cure underwater bringing the tank back in service causing little disruption to the passengers and crew alike, saving costly dockings or layups. The results speak for themselves.
