MV Ocean Boomer
Asbestos Services, Marine Insulation and Sheet Metal Fabrication

In 2005 while MV Ocean Boomer was at A&P Falmouth docks, Shield Marine carried out a refit and asbestos strip out.

We were asked to provide specialist advice on suspected asbestos contamination in the engine room.  We carried out an air test and took samples of the suspected asbestos-containing materials. All tested positive for asbestos.  Shield Marine was contracted to remove the asbestos insulation and encapsulate some small areas. New insulation was then installed and finished with glass cloth and galvanised metal cladding.

Due to the client’s lack of experience in this area, we were more than happy to assist with the overall management of the project including coordination with the various regulatory bodies to ensure a satisfactory outcome.
