'M/V Autosky,' capable of carrying 2,080 cars & commercial vehicles leaves UK's A&P Falmouth Shipyard after repairs, overhauls, re-painting.

The contract work included repairs, an overhaul of the bow thruster, removal of two Becker rudders, overhaul of trailing flaps and two Stabilizer trailing flaps, and a complete change of livery with new ship side logos.

The long-term relationship between the dockyard and United European Car Carriers (UECC) highlights the importance of repeat business for A&P Falmouth. In the past 15 years UECC has docked at least one vessel per year inFalmouth.

With a fleet of 21 owned and managed vessels,the owners, UECC is a leading provider of short sea roll on roll off (RoRo) transportation in Europe, and A&P is well placed to provide maintenance and repair services for the fleet.

M/V Autosky’s Superintendent Dave Barker said: “A&P Falmouth was chosen in competition with other North European yards for the dry docking, maintenance and repairs of the Autosky. The project was carried out in a timely, efficient manner, with a very high standard of workmanship maintained. The cooperation with the management and repair teams has been excellent. The support we receive from A&P makes them one of our preferred suppliers inEurope.”
