Wilson Hirtshals enters service following overhaul
Wilson ASA has brought another vessel, Wilson Hirtshals, into service, following an extensive overhaul. The company has taken ownership of the 2001-built, 4250 dwt vessel this summer, and sent it straight to the dock, for some refurbishment, reaching beyond a fresh coat of paint.
The upgrade consisted of sandblasting of hull, cargo hold, deck, and hatches, overhauling of all engines and bow thrusters, steel replacement, cleaning of bunker and ballast tanks, upgrade of equipment on the bridge, and more.
The general cargo vessel strengthened for heavy cargo, is now ready to enter Wilson trade. And the trade does continue with the company’s Wilson Grimsby loading offshore burner book for a floating rig installation in Bergen.
In Mo i Rana, the company’s cargo vessel Wilson Ruhr completed all operations at Rana Industriterminal using shore power. Following operations by Wilson Ruhr, Wilson Perth also got to use the facility a week later.
