On May 2nd 2016, Carnival Cruises’ Adonia sailed into the history books when she became the first cruise vessel since the 1950s to sail direct from the USA to Cuba. As part of her recent overhaul, Atlantic Pacific Marine was tasked with multiple works during her dry dock in Freeport.
Our main project was the new installation of a new Alpha Laval Ballast Water Treatment system. This involved cutting out steel shelving in the engine room, and re-locating and installing steel foundations for the plant. Also we installed the AOT reactor, filter, CIP unit, lamp drive cabinet, lamp drive skid, booster pumps and all electrical panels and equipment.
Additionally, we undertook a number of steel work projects and pipe repairs throughout the vessel, plus re-positioned the emergency air generators on deck 10.
Pipework for the Ballast Water Treatment system included Cunifer, GRE, GF, and stainless steel, and encompassed all the water, sea cooling, fresh water and air supplies for the plant.
All the associated valves were supplied and installed by our team, along with all the associated electrical work.
The project was completed in 10 days, on-time and on-budget.
