Blohm + Voss Repair Wins Business

Friday, September 10, 2004

Earlier this year, the Black Prince of the Fred. Olsen Cruises Line shipping company docked into Dock 10 of Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH. The cruise liner was originally constructed in such a way that it was able to be employed on the one hand as a passenger liner and cargo ship, and on the other as a passenger and car ferry. The Black Prince was converted into a pure passenger liner in 1986.

A maximum of 451 passengers can go on a cruise in the 241 cabins of the Black Prince. The last full renovation took place in 1999. The 464.6 x 66.5 ft. (141.6 x 20.3 m) ship, with a draft of 21 ft. (6.4 m) is now receiving a new crankshaft on the port side at Blohm + Voss Repair. Moreover, some paint work has to be carried out in addition to retouch work on the engine plant.

MS Europa

The MS Europa five-star-plus luxury cruise liner from the Hapag Lloyd Kreuzfahrten GmbH was expected to arrive at the dock of the Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH on August 31, 2004. Extensive modernization will be carried out on the 651.5 x 78.7 ft. (198.6 x 24 m) cruise liner by September 14, 2004. The MS EUROPA is the flagship of Hapag Lloyd's fleet of cruise liners and offers the utmost in comfort for up to 408 passengers.

Modernization works include the installation of a new fitness room, conversion of the "Lido Café" and completion of the new stern-side "Sansibar" which will be connected to the "Lido Café" via a stairwell. Following its modernization, the former golf center will house a large play area for children. A new air-conditioning system will also be installed for the whole of the newly-created passenger areas.

Furthermore, the storage spaces for the Zodiac rubber dinghies located on board including the accompanying storage rooms and the disembarking cranes are being renewed/re-designed.
