As long standing customers of Vc Metalwork, and with close ties with both Bystander and Velsheda, we were chosen to be the metalwork supplier of choice for the vessels spring reparations.

During the yard service Vc Metalwork conducted a full repair and refurbishment of the Alfa Laval cooling system along with all associated pipe and flange work.

Parts were dissembled and removed from the boat before being transported to our workshop in Palma. Full strip and refurbishment of the cooling system was conducted with expert re-installation in STP post completion.

Along with this engineering work Vc Metalwork have also conducted various machining and coded welding works to ensure this beautiful vessel maintains its busy program both with and without Velsheda for the season to come.

Barnaby DennenCaptain - Bystander

“I have contracted many different engineering/fabrication projects with Vc Metalwork on M/Y Bystander. These projects included many different aspects of fabrication and repair to a very high standard, including critical components relating to the safe operation of the vessel.

At all times I found the level of professionalism and final product to be of a very high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend Vc Metalwork as a business that produces high quality products, and one that can be trusted to maintain and fabricate critical components subjected to the high standards demanded by the marine environment.”
