Belzona Facts:

Rebuilding the housing conventionally would have required the yard to dismantle the equipment and then ship it to a suitably sized machine shop for welding and line boring making for an expensive repair. This Belzona repair incurs a fraction of the downtime normally associated with these types of repairs saving enormous amount of money.
