Norwegian Cruise Lines’ ‘Norwegian Epic’ is undergoing a refit and maintenance programme at Damen Shiprepair Brest’s drydock.

The vessel will remain in Damen’s largest drydock until 18 October. As well as carrying out the repair and maintenance works, Damen will provide allnecessary logistic services to Norwegian Cruise Line’s arranged contractors.

“This isn’t just another mega-class cruise ship”, said Robert Diepenbroek, managing director, Damen Shiprepair Brest. “Norwegian Epic is cruising reimagined with innovations never before seen at sea. Being today’s fifth largest cruise vessel, the ship is a floating hotel with all related facilities, including bars, restaurants, theatres, casinos, swimming pools, etcetera.”

In order to improve the general services demanded of this cruise vessel project, Damen Shiprepair Brest has, together with the local government body ‘La Chambre de Commerce et d’Industriel’ (CCI), implemented a number of upgrades to the yard to make it dedicated for cruise vessel retrofits.

These include the installation of a new fire and cooling water supply system, able to supply up to 800m3 per hour and can be adjusted by a variable flow control to suit different vessels’ needs.

Damen Shiprepair Brest’s black and grey water disposal has also been upgraded to help during modifications to the cruise vessel onboard system.

In addition, dedicated storage and workshop areas for owners’ arranged subcontractors and specialists have been made around the yard’s large drydock number three.

Damen has also gained support from the terminal operator opposite the yard for unloading, temporary storage and loading of containers require for cruise projects.
