Queen Mary 2 In-service Ship Repair


Project Type

In-service Ship Repair


Atlantic Ocean




Carnival Cruises


Lloyd’s Register

In conjunction with SRC Group, an in-service SPS project for Carnival Cruises on board the Queen Mary 2 was completed in September 2018, following on from a similar project in October 2017.  Both projects were undertaken during scheduled cruises between New York, US and Southampton, UK.  The repairs were inspected and approved by Lloyd’s Register on both sides of the Atlantic.

Repairs to assets and vessels with Sandwich Plate System, SPS, have been delivered for nearly thirty years. Approved by major Classification Societies, the structural composite SPS brings a repair that is stronger than the original and will last the lifetime of the vessel or asset, and this SPS Repair lasted until the vessel was decommissioned. Whatever the size, repairs with SPS can be delivered by Cold Work (also known as No Hot Work) and low heat methods — keeping your personnel on board and project schedules safe.

SPS Technology can deliver in-service ship repair wherever in the world a vessel may be through our SPS Technology Partner Network.

Keep up with our Maritime & Offshore LinkedIn page for up to date information about SPS Technology.

The team was able to complete the repair under challenging circumstances whilst the vessel was in-service. In order to not impact our guests’ cruise experience, restrictions were placed on when works could be undertaken which the team worked around delivering the project on time with minimal disruption.
