A&P Shipcare Gets Conversion Project

Wednesday, May 01, 2002
A&P Shipcare has recently won the contract to convert the Union Arrow from a mini bulk carrier into a self discharge bulk carrier at its Chatham facility. The vessel, which is owned by the Union Transport Group, arrived in Chatham on 18 April 2002 for a scheduled 12 day conversion period, during which a 40 tonne Samsung crane will be installed. Work will also include fitting of sloping bulkheads fore and aft, construction and fitting of a main deck insert, construction of a void area to house a bobcat machine, installation of strengthening columns, construction of hatch end coverings. In addition to the above work, the vessel will also be fitted with a new engine to assist with the extra requirements of the vessel as a self discharger. Managing Director of A&P Shipcare - Chatham, Paul Huseman, commented: "We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract in Chatham, which is progressing very well and we look forward to having the opportunity to work with Union Transport Group again in the future".
