SPS Technology has undertaken vessel strengthening and repair on over 30 of P&O’s vessels.

‘The use of SPS for these repairs was perfect, as on a couple of the vessels the repair areas were between the bulkhead and deck with pipes and drains littering the area and making access difficult.  SPS is the most efficient repair method for these vessels.  The SPS team had to carefully plan injections and process control as the temperature was colder than we would have liked.’

Hans Pronk, P & O Ferries’ Technical Operations Manager

Here’s a sample of some of the repairs we’ve done for P & O Ferries:

Repairs to assets and vessels with Sandwich Plate System, SPS, have been delivered for nearly thirty years. Approved by major Classification Societies, the structural composite SPS brings a repair that is stronger than the original and will last the lifetime of the vessel or asset, and this SPS Repair lasted until the vessel was decommissioned. Repairs with SPS can be delivered by Cold Work (also known as No Hot Work) and low heat methods — keeping your personnel on board and project schedules safe.
