Liberian-flagged Elbtank Italy chemical tanker, owned by German TB Marine Shipmanagement has been reincarnated as Maersk Arctic at Polish ship repair company Remontowa S.A.

The ship entered the yard early November for an overhaul only to depart the yard featuring a new livery-the Maersk blue, a new owner and a new name.

The extend of repairs on this ship covered cargo line trials, PV valves overhaul, overhauls of three systems of main engine, stern tube seal replacement, minor steel replacement works in two ballast water tanks, load tests on deck cranes and accommodation ladders.

As the Elbtank Italy was purchased by Maersk Tankers’ division in Singapore, after its undocking the ship spent a few more days at the yard’s quay.

The new owner commissioned the yard with a few minor repairs, such as repairs to one of the lifeboats, painting the new name of the ship on its sides and at the bridge, as well as placing a new funnel mark. The ship now flies the Singapore flag.

Built in 2006 at South Korean yard Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, the tanker features 183.2 m length overall, 27.1 m beam, 11.21 m draught and 36,992 ton deadweight capacity.
