Atlantic Reefer & Pacific Reefer lengthening - Update from Shanghai (ed. 1)

Saturday the 3rd of December, the Pacific Reefer arrived in Shanghai for the lengthening of the ship at the Cosco Shanghai Shipyard. In short, the lengthening involves the cutting of the vessel just aft of cargo hold number 2 and inserting a 30 meter section with two bays of containers. As part of this project, a new container crane and generator set will be installed, the bridge height will be increased and the arrangement of the current deck containers will be modified to increase the intake of the vessel. The past two weeks have been full of the preparations to start the actual cutting operation. The wheelhouse has been emptied of all equipment, the piping and electrical cable in way of the cut were removed, tanks emptied and cleaned, temporary reinforcements were installed in the fore ship and above all, more than m2 of insulation was removed. The Pacific Reefer is currently in the dry dock and on the evening of the 16th December, the final cut will be made in the deck structure separating the two halves. After the weekend please expect an update of the cutting of the ship... Meanwhile, the Atlantic Reefer has arrived and is alongside the shipyard quay since Thursday evening, hot on the heels of her younger sister. Wishing you all the best from Shanghai, Tienco de Vries, Henk-Jan Kip, Edmundo Tienzo and Marco Scholtens
