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.
