Research vessel ‘Thor Magni’ in MEST’s dry dock

Thor’s new research vessel Thor Magni, which was built in Turkey in 2015 decided to undertake some important repair work on the vessel at MEST shipyard in the Faroe Islands last week.

The vessel came from Esbjerg, where it was based, to MEST’s dry dock in the Faroes on Thursday 13 October.

The repair work was undertaken and the work finished already on Friday 14 October.  

A leakage was in one the stuffing boxes on one of the shafts.

MEST solved the problem together with an expert from the Netherlands within 24 hours – so the vessel could go back to business quickly!
