Wheeler Becomes U.S. Agent For Romanian Yard

Wheeler Associates has become the exclusive U.S. agent for 2 Mai Mangalia shipyard in Romania. The first American vessel to be repaired in the relatively new shipyard is 62,500-dwt MV Themera of Transglobal Sea Carriers, Inc., New York, with extensive steel renewals scheduled to be performed.

The facility is reportedly the largest in Romania, capable of handling ships weighing up to 200,000 dwt. Three drydocks are available: one 984.2 ft. (300 m) long and 157 ft. (48 m) wide for newbuildings, and one 1,181 ft. (360 m) long and 196.8 ft. (60 m) wide for repairs, both of which have crane capacity for 16, 50 and 120 tons; and the "step" newbuilding dock with two gantry cranes with 480-ton capacities.
