Here are some glimpses of UN Karadeniz, a vessel owned by U.N. Ro-Ro, Turkey’s largest operator of freight ferry routes, undergoing a transformation in dry dock at the Gemak Group of Companies shipyard in Turkey.

The 2008-built vessel is being lengthened by 30 metres and once completed its capacity will be boosted to hold 55 more trailers.

The ship is the first of U.N. Ro-Ro vessels to feature the DFDS livery.

To remind, Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS closed the acquisition of 98.8% of U.N. Ro-Ro at the beginning of June.

The integration process of the two companies is expected to be finalized by the end of the year.

UN Karadeniz is expected to complete its transformation in the second half of September when it will go back on its  route.

U.N. Ro-Ro operates five freight shipping routes connecting Turkey with Italy and France. The company has a fleet of 12 freight ferries with an average age of 11 years.
