At the end of March , the mobilisation of Ile d’Ouessant, commissioned by Luis Dreyfus Armateurs, was completed. The project was to change the configuration and equipment of the ship which entered the yard as Platform Support Vessel and adapting her to perform work intendent for cable layer, whose task is to lay and repair submarine telecommunication cables. It was a prestigious, very interesting and one of the most technically advanced projects carried at Remontowa S.A. at the turn of 2019 and 2020. The ship also underwent a classic dock and maintenance repairs. Exactly a year ago in March ‘19, „Ile de Batz” underwent similar mobilization in our Shipyard.
The container/RoRo Carrier Grande Gabon, initiated the set of five vessels from the Grande Morocco series belonging to the Italian shipowner Grimaldi Deep Sea SpA, on which scrubber systems will be installed.
Grande Marocco series are the con-ro vessels built in 2010-2011.
In 2019, in Remontowa S.A. we had installed scrubbers on 5 vessels from the Grande Lagos serie.
The highlight of the Mazarine project was the construction of an additional, new cargo deck, from the superstructure towards the bow, and the installation of a hydraulic entry ramp. This is an additional 1000 tonnes that hit the ship. Earlier prepared sections were transported to the ship’s deck by our floating sheerleg REM-220. A full range of mechanical, hull maintenance and painting works were carried out. The entire superstructure and new sections were also refreshed from the outside including a silicone paint application on the underwater part of the hull.
Due to the excellent organization of work, the project proceed according to the schedule. Mazarine is the first vessel of a Belgian shipowner, which was converted by our shipyard. She is a Ro-Ro Cargo Ship built in 2009 at the shipyard in Flensburg, Germany, owned by Belgian company Cobelfret from Antwerp.
