APL Panama


After a complicated and extensive salvage operation on the coast of Mexico in December 2005, the good ship "APL Panama" was towed cross the Pacific Ocean for dry-docking and extensive hull repairs at Subic Shipyard and Engineering, Subic Bay, Philippine.

Mermaid Maritime Consulting Ltd. was arranged appointed to perform site management and supervise the steel structure and propulsion system.

The repair, which included most of double bottom and a major stiffening of the hull girder, was necessary to avoid torsion in the hull girder.

The work was done from medium June and the end of September year 2006.
