Volcanic ash raining onto main deck
We carried out a partial retubing job in anchorage off Batangas Philippines in early January 2020. Although owner did not provide us with the Kangrim Boiler drawing, we are still able to carry out this job as we have the drawing in our record for this 18-ton boiler.
The duration of the job was 2 weeks but half way through the job, the Taal volcano, which was located 20 km away from Batangas, has a minor eruption. This caused some anxiety but luckily, the condition of the eruption was not too severe. However, some of the volcanic ash was raining on to the deck of the ship. We managed to complete our job within the time quoted without any further disruption and all staff returned safely. KANGRIM AUX BOILER TYPE PB 0301AS12
