Multiple vessel winter modifications

Viking Idun at DSAm

With this winter service complete, all six vessels – known as longships – will be ready for the coming river cruise season.
DSAm will carry out the contract one vessel at a time. The Viking Idi was the first of the six to arrive at the yard in late December 2015. Sister ships Viking Idun, Viking Kvasir, Viking Kara, Viking Hlin and Viking Gullveig will follow consecutively. With each vessel spending an average of ten to eleven days at the yard, the entire contract will be completed by early March.
The primary scope of work for all six longships comprises stern frame modifications necessary to prevent propeller damage during turning manoeuvres in canals and other narrow waterways. The solution is to install an additional steel construction reaching from the seawater inlet chest all the way to the stern. To reduce the time spent at the yard, Damen is prefabricating the steel components in advance.

The DSAm team will also carry out any necessary maintenance on the vessels while they have them in drydock. For example, the Viking Idi needed a replacement port propeller. Furthermore, the vertical sides of its hull and the seawater inlet chest box coolers were high-pressure washed and cleaned.

Damen Shiprepair Amsterdam (DSAm), part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, is currently undertaking a substantial modification and maintenance contract for six inland cruise vessels owned by Viking River Cruises.
