MV. IONIAN SEA ACCOMMODATED IN DRYDOCK
Colombo was the best option for the owners/ managers given the strategic location placing the vessel closer to her discharging port (in India) and next employment.

Stern tube seal renewal and related repairs along with routine drydock repairs.

The yard team was headed by Ship Manager Ajith Kariyapperuma – who was well supported by all production departments to re-deliver the vessel on schedule.
