Lelie C, a cement carrier owned by Cebo Marine, has retuned to Damen Shiprepair Oranjawerf for a full maintenance programme and a significant change to its cement carrying capacity.
After more than two years since its previous visit, the three-week stopover included a full survey and a range of repairs and maintenance to prepare her for more years of reliable service.
The main project was the installation of eight new cement silos, each with a capacity of 40 m³, refurbished from previous cement ship VOS Symphony.
“This was a big project,” commented Jeen van der Werf, Commercial Manager at Damen Shiprepair Oranjewerf. “Two years ago we installed the original tanks from the Ritske, a vessel belonging to the same client, and now we have repeated the process again, this time on a much larger scale. The Lelie C began her life as a general cargo vessel, but now her transformation into a cement carrier is complete”.
