Second Life project of geared container vessel in dock 5

Last month EDR Antwerp Shipyard managed and executed a second life project of a geared container vessel in dock 5 (265 m by 39 m). In the soaring container market, each second is of importance and pressure on the project timing is never far away. During her docking the vessel underwent full hull blasting, pipe- and BWTS modifications, hatch cover treatment and repairs, cargo hold upgrade, engine overhaul and shaft and propeller replacement.

This versatile vessel is now ready for her second life and will be a reliable addition to the container fleet.
