MV Maltese Falcon as new after extensive refurbishing
Sea Maltas mv Maltese Falcon has successfully completed
an intermediate survey at the Malta Drydocks. The periodic survey carried
out in line with the class requirement to ensure the vessels structural
and mechanical reliability follows a previous one carried out on the
mv Zebbug two months ago.
During her visit to the ship at the docks, Sea Malta Chairman Mrs Marlene
Mizzi commented on the vital role of the mv Maltese Falcon in sustaining
the organisations efforts towards the provision of an important
link between Malta and mainland Europe. "Purchased in 1999, the
mv Maltese Falcon, is the fastest and largest ship ever owned by Sea
Malta and operates the Malta Tunis Genoa Marseilles
Genoa route in a most efficient manner that benefits the local
Mrs Mizzi adds, "Conscious of the importance of the schedule reliability
for trailer operators and the industry at large, every effort is made
to maintain punctuality of arrivals and departures. This can only be
ensured through the regular and costly servicing of our vessels, an
effort that forms part of our commitment to offer an edge in the service
we provide to all our clients."
Joseph Bugeja Sea Maltas General Manager said that the survey
consisted of a comprehensive technical assessment followed by repair
works on the ships hull and machinery, which involved extensive
works including the grit blasting and repainting of the entire ships
structure. All repair works were carried out under the supervision of
an appointed technical team from Sea Maltas ship management division.
Finally, Sea Malta Chairman also took the opportunity to thank the management
and workers of Malta Dry-docks who have worked relentlessly to complete
an excellent job within the agreed deadlines.
