Spotted: Damen Gives a Makeover to CN Bulkers’ Newcomers

Sanna - HSF20160204-5627

The Sanna stands tall as it boasts its freshly painted hull following completion of maintenance and survey works at Dutch shipbuilder Damen. The bulker was refitted within a project that included four bulk carriers recently bought at auction by Dutch shipping company CN Bulkers.

The vessels ranging from 16,000 to 17,000 dwt had not been dry-docked since 2012.

The scope of the works included 5-year special surveys for three of the ships and a 15-year survey for the fourth. Each underwent a thorough cleaning and repainting below the waterline, and some assorted blasting and painting on the topsides.

Two of the vessels were ready for sea by mid-February, the second by 24th of the same month and the last left the dock on 8 March.

The vessels were given new names – the Sotra, Sanna, Senja and Silda, respectively.
