Godby Shipping on the path of newbuilt tonnage

By | 2022 Newsletter week 1 | No Comments

Godby Shipping’s crew magazine FlaskPosten has an interesting editorial by MD Dan Mikkola. Some highlights:

  • Roro freight rates on the rise
  • Roro market positive
  • Godby sold two old ships and bought three younger vessels.
  • The combination of increasingly expensive class renewal docks, installation of ballast water treatment systems and various adaptations to EEXI and CII, plus costs for future emission rights provide strong reasons for investing in newbuildings

Shipyard visits for the DFDS Calais and Dunkerque ships

COTE DES DUNES moved to Dunkerque on Monday morning for drydock.  She will be followed two weeks later by COTE DES FLANDRES.  They will receive the Lighthouse cafe concept found on COTE D’OPALE and the Dunkerque ships as well as a new look Duty Free shop.

The Dunkerque ships are going to Fayard this year for longer refits of 3 – 4 weeks each.

The remaining areas of the ships not attended to in 2019 or 2020 will receive attention – that is Roadkings and 7 Seas will be refurbished.

There will also be sustainability works to allow the recovery of heat from the funnel to heat the engine oil, removing the need to burn diesel to heat the engine oil.
