BLRT Repair Yards carry out class renewal for Wagenborg MPP vessel
BLRT Repair Yards in Klaipeda recently completed the first class renewal for Royal Wagenborg’s general cargo vessel, Egbert Wagenborg. It was the first class renewal for the multipurpose vessel since it was launched at the Koninklijke Niestern Sander in 2017.
Egbert Wagenborg is a next-generation open-top ice-classed general cargo vessel and the 1st vessel in the Easy Max series in Royal Wagenborg`s fleet. The vessel is named after the founder of Royal Wagenborg – Egbert Wagenborg who founded the company in 1898. The vessel is the leader in its segment in terms of sustainability and was honoured with the Maritime KVNR Shipping award in 2017 established by the Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners (Koninklijke Vereniging van Nederlandse Reders (KVNR)) to honour an organisation or individual who, through innovation, contributed to the shipping industry in the Netherlands the most.
Specialists of the BLRT Repair Yards carried out repairs in accordance with classification society requirements and replaced previously installed ballast water treatment system with a more modern and powerful one. The modernisation has made the ship even greener and more environmentally friendly.
Team BLRT Repair Yards released a video of the operation.
