Fifth converted tanker from Guangzhou in a series of six.
Following the delivery of mv "TREASURE" in June 2008, the fifth vessel out of a series of six, mv "TRIUMPH", now joins the fleet of Dockwise Transport, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dockwise Ltd. As was the case with the earlier four, this vessel is in accordance with the delivery schedule.
The remaining converted tanker TRUSTEE will be delivered at the end of this month. With the addition of six vessels to the fleet, Dockwise is able to optimize strategic deployment of the 22-vessel fleet to best serve the various markets.
After successfully completing the submerging test and sea trials, mv " TRIUMPH" was delivered today, 16th December 2008. The heavy transport vessel is designed to transport complex, high-value cargo like jack- up drilling units and has a carrying capacity in excess of 35,000 tons. Triumph will load its first cargo in Singapore. This vessel was converted at the COSCO shipyard at Guangzhou, China. During the conversion, the entire midship section has been replaced and machinery and equipment were fully revised and renewed.
The conversion of TRIUMPH forms part of Dockwise's USD 220 million Capital expenditure program for 2008.
To ensure the most effective way of operating the vessel, Dockwise has appointed Anglo-Eastern Ship Management (Glasgow) to provide technical and crew management. As such, the new vessels will operate under the same management systems as the existing Dockwise vessels.
