Offshore-Inland Completes Repairs on Celebrity Millennium

Offshore-Inland Marine & Oilfield Services completed a repair job for Celebrity Cruise Lines in November 2003. Celebrity’s Millennium required replacement of a 20-ton main propulsion transformer during a planned port visit at Port Everglades, Fla. Offshore Inland responded in spite of the strict time frame requirement to cut a large access opening in the vessel’s side, remove the existing transformer, install a new Celebrity provided transformer and close the access opening all in less than 17 hours. Offshore-Inland developed a plan and sent its team of highly skilled workers to both ride the vessel to Port Everglades and to meet the vessel in Port Everglades to effect the work. Through coordination with Celebrity and local contractors, Offshore-Inland Marine & Oilfield services successfully completed the in-port work in less than 14 hours, much to the satisfaction of Celebrity.
