This docking highlighted the flexibility and modern technology of the Chemco solvent-free systems. Utilising low levels of equipment, the jet washing and coating could also be undertaken whilst the vessel was afloat and awaiting dry-dock space, either at anchor or at quayside. This is possible as there are NO restrictions on humidity or dew point with the Chemco systems as well as unlimited over-coating duration. The significant advantage was that 80% of the work was carried out in water (at quayside) before the dry docking was arranged. The obvious advantages to ship owners, ship managers and dry-docks are enormous in organisation of work programmes with no massive loss of downtimes and reduced cost return-to-service quickly.
