Good evening Gents,

I have three questions;

1) Can someone supply me with the Keel Laid/Launch and Delivery dates of the Benalder/Benarty and Benavon.

2) Since 2011 Maersk is rebuilding 5 classes of their container fleet.
   Can someone supply with the years of rebuilding of these vessels.
   Not all vessels are done yet but all info is welcome.
   I already know the A.P. Møller according to the pics from Denys.
   According to my info the concerned classes are; A-class (Only A.P. Møller done)
                                                   C-class (except Clementine/Columbine/Cornelia)
                                                   E-class (except Ebba/Estelle/Evelyn)
                                                   G-class (except Gunhilde)\         
                                                   S-class (don't know yet)
                                                   

3) Are there websites available where you can find this kind of info.


All conversions were done by CSIC Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., Qingdao

Best regards

Hi Leon,

Benalder was delivered 10/1972, Benavon 01/1973 and Benarty (City of Edinburgh) 11/1973.

The A-class did not had a Bridge elevation, A.P.Moller is not an A-class but a S/C-class vessel.

It all started in 2011, as you mentioned. I don't have all the dates for all the specific vessels but besides the classes you have mentioned also the Singapore flag A-class (different from the Danish Odense built A-class) i.e Alfirk, Algol, Altair and Antares had Bridge elevation and the Singapore /Hong Kong flag L-class had a bridge elevation. In this class the last eight were delivered with elevated bridge and the first eight (La Paz, Laguna, Lavras, Lebu, Leticia, Lima, Lirquen and Luz) were elevated at a later date (first 5-year drydock).
Also the ex-Dutch flagged S-class, i.e. Stepnica, Salalah, Salinah, Savannah and Stockholm did had a bridge elevation during their first 5-yearly drydock.

The G-class you mentioned exists of the original 6 g-class vessels and 6 m-class vessels which were renamed with g-names when the triple-e's were delivered.

I'm unaware of any website having all the rebuilding/modification dates readily available but they all have been done at a scheduled 5-yearly drydock.

Cheers,
Roy

Hi Roy,

Thank you very much for all this info.
I was really unaware of all the other classes although I suspected the L class also.
Yes I know about the G class and according to pics on here the Gunhilde didn't have the elevation yet.
It's a lot off searching again but fun to do.

Best regards

Leon
