A & P Falmouth Has Good Outlook With Reefer Market

Friday, October 12, 2001
The reefer market has proved successful for A&P Falmouth throughout recent months with a total of six bookings for reefer ships from two separate owners. Falmouth is ideally located for the reefer trades on the ballast route from Northern Europe to loading ports in South Africa, Canary Islands and the Caribbean.

Amer Shipping's 13,312 grt vessel the Amer Choapa was the first to enter the shipyard during July. Work completed during the 9 day docking included blasting and painting, steelwork repairs, hatch cover repairs, main engine survey and overhauls to the rudder and tailshaft. Following the successful completion of the Amer Choapa, the 9,070 grt Amer Whitney arrived during early August for similar works covering a 10-day period. Having successfully completed both vessels, A&P Falmouth are now awaiting the arrival on 9th October of the third Amer Shipping vessel the 9,072 grt Amer Everest, for drydocking and survey.

Another major reefer vessel owner, Norway's Leif Hoegh & Co. ASA, also utilized the repair facilities of A&P Falmouth. The 7,743 grt Crystal Pride arrived during early September for drydocking and survey, which included hull preparation and painting and boiler and generator maintenance. Deck repairs included work on the cargo cranes and hatch covers. Following the Crystal Pride, her sister ship, Crystal Prince arrived in Falmouth for drydocking and survey during a 12 day period during mid-September, and a third sister ship, the Crystal Primadonna arrived at the end of the month with similar works completed, and left the yard on schedule on October 8.
