POVL ANKER Looks Like Reborn

Orskov Yard has just completed a major upgrade of POVL ANKER. After a six weeks yards stay the ferry headed home to Bornholm looking like the vessel did in 1978 when it was first delivered.

POVL ANKER in Dock for a One-Month Extensive Renovation

POVL ANKER is in dock at Ørskov Shipyard in Frederikshavn from 14 September to 20 October.

The planned refurbishment of POVL ANKER was postponed twice because of COVID-19. The risk that the route to Ystad would be closed by the authorities meant that POVL ANKER had to be kept ready for deployment, in case the island of Bornholm was suddenly completely dependent on the Rønne-Køge route.

Work includes a major energy renovation, A/C, oil treatment plant, lighting, gensets, engines and steam boilers. The ferry will also be repainted as when it was delivered in 1978.
