Pyeroy repaints the SeaRose
By Maria Hadlow28 August 2012
UK based industrial services specialists Pyeroy has completed a contract to support the refurbishment of the 'SeaRose' floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
The access scaffolding and painting work, which was completed within an exacting 24 day timeframe, was awarded to Pyeroy by Harland and Wolff Heavy Industries Ltd (H&W), which provided the dry dock and refit services for the 'SeaRose' at its Belfast yard.
The work saw a team of Pyeroy painters blast the hull and ship side sections back to base coating before applying a new high performance, longer lasting protective coating.
Additionally, Pyeroy provided specialist access and containment services to support the painting and general refurbishment activities undertaken.
Managing director Hugh Pelham said: "We were delighted to win this new work from H&W, reflecting how well we are meeting their needs and working as a partner on major contracts.
"Working alongside H&W, we were committed to ensuring this important project was completed safely and successfully.
"We are well placed for further growth through our strategy of added value and investment, further cementing our position as a market leader in marine industrial services."
