New Orders for Blohm + Voss Repair

Thursday, February 26, 2004
On the February 24, the containership PERU was floated into dock 10 of Blohm + Voss GmbH, a company of ThyssenKrupp Werften. The ship, which is owned by the shipping line Schepers & Co. in Elsfleth and classified by Germanischer Lloyd, has a length of 207.40 m, a beam of 29.80 m and a gross tonnage of 33,014 GRT. The work to be carried out includes repair on the sterntube seal, exchange of steel plates (approx. 1 t of steel) and the replacement of the bow thruster. On March 20, the BANASA, a combined passenger/car ferry of the shipping line Comarit of Morocco, is scheduled to arrive. With a length of 115.35 m, a beam of 20.60 m and a deadweight of 11,668 TDW, the BANASA is classified by Bureau Veritas. To improve the stability of the ship, sponsons will be attached on port and starboard and a so-called duck tail will be attached to the aft. Sponsons are boxes attached to the ship's sides and often called "hamster cheeks". The work will be completed after about four weeks. The BERKANA, also owned by Comarit, will be docked from May to June at Blohm + Voss Repair. In addition to the installation of a sprinkler system in the passenger and crew area, sponsons and a duck tail will be mounted as on the BANASA. The BERKANE has a length of 155.02 m, a beam of 24.02 m and a deadweight of 20,079 TDW. In December 2003, Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH, a company active both on the national and international market, received the certified IMS, an Integrated Management System covering the areas quality, safety and environmental protection as well as risk analysis. With this certificate, Blohm + Voss Repair proves that modern shipyard industry is able to observe the most stringent environmental regulations meeting all work safety regulations in an economic way.
