Recently, the mv Vechtborg (flying the Dutch flag) has been taken into service again after her fifth special survey.
During a period of maintenance, the 9.000 DWT v-type multipurpose vessel received a variety of maintenance works and updates on the hull, cargo holds, hatch covers, gantry crane, machinery and systems.
These investments guarantee at least five more years of reliable shipping services for our customers.
Life time extension
Wagenborg always has set high-quality standards for her relatively young fleet of multipurpose vessels: it is all about zero damage, reliability and flexibility for their customers.
This focus on quality results in an economic lifetime of at least 30 years and does not create an urge to replace ageing vessels with newer ones, while new propulsion systems and alternative fuels are still unclear in the MPP segment.
By applying innovations and modifications to her existing fleet and maintaining high quality with maintenance and repairs, Wagenborg can extend the lifetime of her existing tonnage even further.
