Time-savings made by Trimline during DFDS refit

As part of the update programme to bring existing DFDS Seaways C-Class tonnage up to the same high standards of the new tonnage, Trimline has just completed the refurbishment of key public areas onboard Côte Des Dunes and Côte Des Flandres. Both refits took place concurrently at Damen shipyard in Dunkerque.

The experienced Trimline team worked closely with long-standing suppliers and the dockyard to meet the short timescales and deliver all materials to site ready to start the project in early January.

The 50-strong team of specialist trades first stripped-out Côte Des Dunes and then completed the full refurbishment of the Sea Shop and Lighthouse Café as planned in 15 days. Then due to the knowledge gained during the first refit, plus the time-savings by using Trimline’s App (TAPP), the team managed to complete the identical refurbishment on Côte Des Flandres ahead of the planned schedule.

Trimline’s Project Manager Billy Morton said “Both the onsite and Head Office teams really went the extra mile in order to start the project on time, and then complete it ahead of schedule. I’m so proud of how the Sea Shops and Lighthouse Cafés look.”

“It’s been great to work with Trimline again and they have delivered some fantastic upgrades in our Duty-Free shops and New Light House Café, says Steve Newbery, DFDS Onboard Commercial Director. I particularly want to thank Trimline for delivering these projects against two very tight refit schedules.”
