Remontowa launches its third REM 120 type multipurpose cargo vessel

On October 31, 2008, Northern Shipyard (Stocznia Polnocna), member of REMONTOWA Group, launched third unit in a series of multipurpose cargo vessels, of which BBC Kwiatkowski, delivered at the very end of September 2008, is already in operation, while the second unit, BBC Gdansk, is under outfitting.

All three ships have been built to the order of Gdansk Sea Lines (GSL or Gdanskie Linie Morskie) for the long-term charterer at BBC Chartering & Logistic GmbH & Co. KG. They represent the B 603 series (also known as 1854) / REM 120 type.

Remontowa has established itself not only as an experienced ship repair market leader, performing also extensive and complex ships and offshore structures conversions and upgrades, but is becoming ever stronger player on the newbuilding market as well, especially through its subsidiary - Stocznia Polnocna SA (Northern Shipyard). Recently REMONTOWA Group entered ship owning and ship operations sector as a founder and main owner of Gdansk Sea Lines.

The REM 120 type vessels is reinforced for heavy cargoes and equipped to carry containers, with a maximum capacity of 533 TEU (including refrigerated units). Two 120-t cranes will also be installed able to work in tandem for 240 t combined SWL. The ships are also suitable for carriage of general and break-bulk cargoes, hazardous cargoes, as well as heavy and oversized units, with unrestricted areas of operation, including Great Lakes / St. Lawrence Seaway. Enhancing the flexibility of the vessel's loading scenarios, the tweendeck panels can be fitted at 4.7 and 6.0 m above tank top or used alternatively as one or two transverse bulkheads (in three locations).

The conceptual design of the 7500 dwt, 533 TEU capacity REM 120 type vessel was developed in-house at Remontowa and its subsidiary - NED naval architecture and marine engineering consultants, while the refinement and development of the design, including of technical and workshop documentation was the result of co-operation of NED, Remontowa's design office, Szczecin New Shipyard and IT-REM (the latter also being a member of Remontowa Group) according to the rules and under the supervision of Germanischer Lloyd.
