Western Shiprepair to take on new work

Monday, 26 October 2015

Read more...The company has entered into an agreement for the work of modernizing five ships, which is to be performed in cooperation with the Amsterdam-based Spliethoff Group. Each of the ships is going to be equipped with exhaust gas cleaning scrubbers, the purpose of which is to reduce the emission of sulphuric compounds into the environment, since more and more attention is being paid to protecting nature and reducing pollution in all areas of human activities, including shipping.
This type of project is new to Western Shiprepair as no ships in Lithuanian Shipyards have so far been equipping with exhaust gas cleaning scrubbers. The process will involve several Western Shipyard Group companies. Western Baltija Shipbuilding is constructing an additional funnel for placing the exhaust gas scrubbers. Vakarų Vamzdynų Sistemos is laying the gas pipelines and will fully assemble the equipment and place it in the funnel. BLRT Era Klaipėda branch office will take care of installing the relevant electrical systems.

Norwegian business upgrades its fleet in Klaipėda

Monday, 13 April 2015

Read more...While the world’s ship repair industry faced difficulties in 2014, Lithuanian ship repairers managed to successfully reach their goals. During 2014, the specialists of Western Shiprepair, a subsidiary of Western Shipyard, repaired 91 ships and achieved one of the principal goals of the company – more ship modernization orders were received.
While preparing for the market players’ rotation, Sea Cargo, a Norwegian shipping business market leader established in 2001, entrusted the Lithuanian ship repair company with the task of modernizing three Ro-Ro type ships. The pilot modernization project was performed on the Trans Carrier ship. Sea Cargo Managing Director Ole Saevild was satisfied with the quality of the work and completion time periods, which resulted in receiving two more orders. Another ship, Ahtela, was the second one to be delivered to the dock. A third ship – Express, due to ownership and name change procedures, had already arrived at Western Shiprepair before the new year, although its modernization work was planned to be performed a bit later. The ships’ advantage after modernization is obvious – cargos may be loaded to any pier independently, without additional costs.
