Title: Renamings
Post by: Ship's Cat on August 21, 2005, 09:09:17 pm
Please post all your sightings of renamed ships in here

Ehm, what´s actually the idea of this topic? Could you explain little closer what you mean? :-)

Does this mean if you see a ship when she´s being renamed and tell here about that renaming?


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: George Robinson on August 22, 2005, 06:35:56 am
I presume they need to be posted as a 'reply' under here rather than as a 'new topic'?

Dates of alteration od record (which is always later than actual renaming) and new owners etc. can be found by ref. to Equasis at www.equasis.org
Just a few to start things off.

AASVAER 1591/72 now BUSTEIN (Dom)
BALTIC SHAMROCK 2780/99 now MERWEKREEK (Nld)
FLINTERSKY 6577/02 now UAL ABERDEEN (Nld)
HOOMOSS 794/85 now LIDER KARTAL (Svk)
HOO TERN 794/85 now LIDER CEYLAN (Svk)

It means exactly what it says and is in response to a request from 'Humberships' on the Shipspotters part of the forum.

Could we please include the IMO NO. with all renamings. This will ensure we are talking about the right ship.

Thanks

I find that an unpleasant answer, but you´re a moderator... ;-)

Still I consider this quite a weird idea because there happen always hundreds of renamings on the seas. But if the most likes this idea, then it should work. I could also put here some renamings if I´ll get infos about ´em or see newly renamed vessels somewhere.

EDIT: Found already one renaming:
AILA (Fin) 4535/89 now AFALINA (Ltu) IMO: 8820092

Be aware that all PONL ship will be renamed in the coming  two month  by removing the P&O-Nedlloyd name and replacing it by maersk..... Black hull will be changed in a blue hull during next dry docking

Well that will save me an awful lot of typing, the P&O NEDLLOYD was always a bit lengthy!
Wonder if all the ships just getting CP ***** names will get another change to Hapag type ****** EXPRESS names!!


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: George Robinson on August 30, 2005, 09:23:03 pm
Well, nine days passed and only one renaming offered (thanks!) except for those I posted to get things started ... looks like the idea has fallen flat!

Today P&O-Nedlloyd Barentsz changed her name into Nedlloyd Barentsz. More ships will follow coming day's & month


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Pekka Laakso on September 15, 2005, 09:13:37 pm
That´s a very interesting move to use old Nedlloyd-prefix. Just wondering how long they are going to use that kind of names. Because I think everyone are thinking that the prefixes would change later to beginning Maersk. :roll:

Post by: Alan M Calvert on September 19, 2005, 02:28:30 am
Hi,
Out here in New Zealand we understand that P&O Nedlloyd will be dropped from the name and replaced by Maersk.I dont understand why they would rename P&O Nedlloyd Barentsz by dropping the P&O Nedlloyd only.Maybe the renaming was still being done at the time of spotting and she is now Maersk Barentsz.I have an interest in P&O Nedlloyd and would welcome any news on change of names or liverey.There are a number of changes to services from here and ships are often only making a couple of viyages before being replaced by others.

Alan :-)

According to the P&O Nedlloyd schedule, the P&O Nedlloyd Botany is shortly to be renamed Maersk Dunafore


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Peter on September 28, 2005, 05:07:54 pm
just heard that it is the intention of A.P. Møller to pay tribute to the maritime tradition of PONL by not changing the name of ships in Maersk .......……but by changing it to Nedlloyd…..... Also some new building ships will be carrying the name Nedlloyd…......….
However the name P&O is disappearing from the ships due to the fact the P&O company is no longer a shareholder.

Interesting that also Sydney Express will be renamed. As I know she is sublet from PONL to Hapag-Lloyd and Columbus New Zealand is sublet to Hamburg-Süd. So my question is: Does also Columbus New Zealand get a Maersk D-name?


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Tony des Landes on September 29, 2005, 02:56:57 am
On the list that I saw, the new name for the Columbus New Zealand was "TBA"

Post by: Alan M Calvert on October 03, 2005, 12:43:27 am
Hi,
Sorry about no replies to these messages but working to many hours.Still seems odd that they would keep the Nedlloyd part of the name as Nedlloyd continue to operate as a seperate company in Europe with their inland barges and transport logistics companies.

Just to inform the members of this list  that Blue Star company  (Netherlands )(100% daughter of PONL ) will be renamed to Nedlloyd Ship Management......


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Alan M Calvert on October 16, 2005, 01:18:59 am
I presume that this is the Blue Star Reederei Shipmanagement Company renamed Nedlloyd ship Management.It still seems strange that Nedlloyd will be involved at this level.

I think that is a great idea. I am interested in the re-namings of livestock carriers (also any scrapped ones) - I am trying to track down what the "Norvantes" became, if anyone can help.
Cheers

Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Phil English on October 19, 2005, 01:41:37 pm
According to Equasis and DnV class, she is still in service as Norvantes.

You can check out vessels for yourself at www.equasis.org, though you won't find scrapped ships there. You can also  log into any classification society 'register book' free of charge on the internet. All can be found via google.com

I have been away in Oz for 3 weeks and have only just caught up with the Maersk renamings of the PO Nedlloyd vessels.

I must say that I am a bit dissappointed, I had hoped that Maesrk would at least regognise in a small way they history of both P&O and Nedlloyd, and rename the vessels Maersk Mairangi, Maersk Remuera, for example.
But they seem intent on removing any trace at all of P&O Nedlloyd.
The D series names that they are giving to the 4100 class are awfull.
Does anyone out there have any idea what the rationale of these name are, ie, are they cities, provinces or what.
Damascus and Dominica are obvious, but what of the others, what do they mean.

As For Needsville, good god!!, is one to be called  "Sackville"!!.

Its nice to hear that the Nedlloyd name will still be seen on ships, and iam pleased that Maersk are remembering some of the history associated with the P&Onedlloyd name.   :-)

please keep posting details of name changes to P&ONL vessels. :-D


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Mike Cornwall on October 25, 2005, 09:11:45 pm
Hi there daywalker,

You seem to know something I don't.
I was be-moaning the fact that Maersk had ignored P&O's history and you are saying that they aren't.
Obviously I have missed something here.
Can you let's know where you have seen this info.

I have just re-read the memo P&O sent to their customers with a list of the re-namings as they relate to NZ services and I quote,
"P&O Nedlloyd owned or long term charter vessels will be re-named with a Maersk prefix and funnel livery will be repainted with the familiar Maersk star on a pale blue background. Other vessels presently operating on P&O Nedlloyd services will revert to owners names" unquote.

This was followed by a list of the vessels involved in our services.

But I would still like to know what all these "D" series name mean.

Rgds/Mike


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Andrew McAlpine on October 26, 2005, 09:39:07 am
Hi mike,
         
I totally agree with you when you say that maersk have ignored P&O's history & having previousely worked for P&Onedlloyd this is a really big shame.

As mentioned here Blue Star Reederei has changed its name to nedlloyd ship management,it seems that the vessels owned by them are dropping the P&O prefix but keeping the nedlloyd prefix so at least this name will live on.

With regard to the "D" series i also think these names are awfull and would like to know their meanings too.

Rgds


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Phil English on October 26, 2005, 12:55:45 pm
Where did the info about Blue Star Reederei changing name come from? There's certainly nothing mentioned on their website. It really doesn't make sense given that the company has nothing to do with Nedlloyd and is now a Maersk Group company. As for the vessels with names prefixed 'NEDLLOYD', these have always been prefixed as such from new and will doubtless change to 'MAERSK' in due course. The renaming of "P&O NEDLLOYD BARENTSZ" to simply "NEDLLOYD BARENTSZ" is, as others have suggested, erroneous.

The rationale behind the 'D' names is simple. These P&ONL ships are in a similar size class (panamax) to Maersk's existing 'D' series vessels, so they just want to be consistent with their nomenclature.

Hope this helps.
Phil

Post by: Andrew McAlpine on October 26, 2005, 02:28:44 pm
hi, the info re blue star (netherlands) changing name to nedlloyd ship management was as per post by ijsje76 on 12/10/2005,

Quote;
"Just to inform the members of this list that Blue Star company (Netherlands )(100% daughter of PONL ) will be renamed to Nedlloyd Ship Management......"

I to have checked their website and cannot find any mention as yet however.


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Phil English on October 26, 2005, 02:49:14 pm
I am wondering if there is some confusion. Blue Star Reederei is a German company set up by P&ONL to take advantage of the German KG fund system. There is a separate P&ONL subsidiary called P&O Nedlloyd Shipmanagement, which is based in Holland.

Maybe APM will be merging the two companies, but I can't find any official notices to that effect and I can't see them retaining the Nedlloyd name either.

Cheers
Phil


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Andrew McAlpine on October 27, 2005, 07:08:11 am
Just thought a would inform people that in light of our discussons there is a new picture submitted by (Peter) today of "Nedlloyd Barentsz" the first PONL ship to be painted in maersk colours.  :-(

http://www.shipspotting.com/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=131584


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Phil English on October 27, 2005, 02:16:40 pm
I stand corrected!! Official statements have now been released.

The Netherlands branch of Reederei Blue Star IS to be renamed Nedlloyd Ship Management. However, the German company is to retain the Blue Star name.

Several of the ships coming under its umbrella will thus be given names with the 'NEDLLOYD' prefix.

The renaming of the 5,468 teu P&O NEDLLOYD BARENTSZ to NEDLLOYD BARENTSZ is also correct, while the 2,980 teu P&O NEDLLOYD NINGBO is to become NEDLLOYD MUSCAT.

Incidentally, nine other ships prefixed in 'NEDLLOYD' were never renamed after the creation of P&O Nedlloyd in 1997, including Nedlloyd's seven hatchless ships (NEDLLOYD ASIA and NEDLLOYD HONG KONG series).


Sorry to have doubted the original posting on the subject, Clearly we have an insider at PONL here, but without knowing that at the time, it just didn't ring true.

With tail firmly between legs........... :-?

Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Tony des Landes on October 30, 2005, 04:00:35 am
It would appear that the P&O Nedlloyd Taranaki is to be renamed Maersk Taranaki in Melbourne 4/12.

Interesting that this is a straight switch of prefixes.

This assumption was based from the ship tracking on the website www.ponl.com.

I've just looked at the Maersk Sealand website. They show the following vessels coming to New Zealand in early 2006.
P&O Nedlloyd Carthago, Maersk Dabou, P&O Nedlloyd Cardigan,
P&O Nedlloyd Carolinas, Maersk Denton and Maersk Damascus.
Some of these seem to be 2005 newbuilds and may be replacing the large 4000 teu ships that call here at present, although I beleive the last two may be renamings for vessels already calling here.

Hi there.
Im new in this ,and i already love the site! :-D
I  have a question,someone who knows something about a small coaster named Hildgard/Hamburg????
I think she was sold in the earlier 80,s to some greek.
And then she had a new name as Athina-s or something...
She was build in the late sixties from Germany.
would be nice if someone could help me with this...
I was aboard on my summerholidays in the mid 80,,,,.
she was sailing  in a trade Vasteras-Goole for PAL LINE!
So,i hope someone could help me.......

The coaster you are thinking of was the HILDEGARD, I remember her on the PAL Line service, a regular at 25 shed here in Goole! According to my records. she was renamed NANNA in 1983 under the German flag, I have a photo of her as such in Hull Roads in 1985. Alfter that, she was renamed ALKI in 1989 and ATHINA S in 1991. I don't have a record of her fate, so she may well still be trading somewhere in the Eastern Med.
Hope this information helps you...

Found on Maersk/PONL schedules a 2002-built vessel MAERSK DUFFIELD, of which haven´t heard anything before. She will have the same rotation as the other PONL Remuera-type vessels, and she will be at Rotterdam in the same day when the COLUMBUS NEW ZEALAND will be there next time. So, I´m just wondering could that MAERSK DUFFIELD be CNZ´s new name (instead of using her christening name Santa Rosanna)?

Post by: Eric H. on January 30, 2007, 06:43:05 pm
Looks like all six Atlantic-"P" class ~12993 GRT / ~17500 DWT multipurpose dry cargo tweendeckers have been chartered by Fednav (Montreal).  The Fednav website ( www.fednav.com ) lists all vessels with their new names.  So far Equasis only shows the Pioneer as renamed, that having occurred on 9 January 2007.  A brief article on page 5 of the December 2006 Port of Hamilton magazine (readable at http://www.hamiltonport.ca/_pdf/2006/061201-PortReport.pdf ) suggests the ships may be employed in the Europe-to-East Coast North America / Great Lakes trade.

BBC Russia (ex Atlantic Progress) (IMO 9223904) will be renamed Federal Patriot

African Patroller (ex Atlantic Patroller, Forest Patroller) (IMO 9190092) will be renamed Federal Patroller

BBC Korea (ex Atlantic Prince, Atlantic Pendant) (IMO 9223899) will be renamed Federal Pendant

Seaboard Pioneer (ex Atlantic Pioneer)(IMO 9190080) has been renamed Federal Pioneer.

Seaboard Power (ex Atlantic Power) (IMO 9190119) will be renamed Federal Power.

Seaboard Chile II (ex Atlantic Pride, Seaboard Rover)(IMO 9190107) will be renamed Federal Pride.

Hi all

I see no problem with the black hulls being replaced by the Blue. PONL should be happy to be part of the Maersk Group, even though the names and brands are fading.

Renaming of vessels are a norm in the maritime industry and unfortunately, who knows what would have happend with PONL in the future if a successful company such as A.P Moller never came along

Jumaine,
          I have to disagree with you when you say P&ONL should be happy to be part of the Maersk group.

Firstly P&ONL are not part of the maersk group as they dont exist, it was a take over and not merger which means that the (UK) & the netherlands no longer have a global leader in liner shipping.

The P&O & Nedlloyd names have very strong histories in their respective countires and around the world and this is now lost for ever, even though the nedlloyd name is being kept on some of the vessels.

I dont dislike maersk line I very much enjoying seeing their vessels in southampton and i am very interested in the company and admire how successfull they are, but having worked for P&ONL for many years and having seen many friends lose their jobs i was very upset when the take over happend even though it had been on the cards for some time.

I do believe that P&ONL was poorly managed, and was given up far to easily in my opinion the management seemed more interested in short term gains for sharholders )myself being one) rather than growing the company, only a few years ago there were rumours of P&ONL buying Hapag Lloyd.

Their are now rumours of maersk buying Hapag Lloyd and i for one hope this doesnt happen as we dint want every container vessel being blue.

So far maersk has taken over EAC,Ben Line,Sealand,Safmarine,P&ONL....hapaglloyd??...who else????

The CCGS Tupper was renamed Caruso, and appears under that name on Equasis, and is now in Dartmouth awaiting it's being moved.

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated, along with anything else about old Coast Guard vessels.

Hello Claire, she is actually owned by a Japanese company called Iino Marine Service Co. Ltd. and was probably chartered to Stena Bulk in 2003 when built as Stena Conductor  then reverted back to her owners in October 2007 to become Diamond Champ. Hope this info helps you.

IMO: 7802067 - 'Baltic Press' is currently undergoing a namechange into 'Festivo' and getting a new paintjob at Göteverken Drydock in Gothenburg, Sweden. I have no idea about who the new owners might be and where she will trade, if anyone knows, please do tell :)
Uploading the picture i got of her today, its not much but its a sign that this ship is not to lay at Götaverken forever.

For those interested, the Danish flagged RoRo TOR Anglia has been renamed a couple of weeks ago "Comanav Tanger". It doesn't change her management or her ownership, but it was a requirement of her charterer (CMA CGM for their subsidy Comanav). It makes now 3 months she has been put on the Marseille/Casablanca line.

Clyde ,
Vessel sold along with sister Pro Giant.
Although she had the outward appearance of Pro Jade , as the paperwork / classification society formalities etc etc had not been completed , she was still as her AIS was showing as Pro Diamond. Completely confusing to shipspotters as well as the usual services. I can only recall this happening one other time and that was for a ship in Newcastle a few years ago - one of MOL's 'Mona' vessels.

What I have been told is this: P&O is out of the company! Not one single vessel will ever cary a marking or a name remembering to P&O! Nedlloyd instead is a big firm with a big interest into the Mærsk Company and will have their name carring on vessels like Safmarine!
If there is contract signed included a vessels name, they will always have that vessel sailing into that contract even if the nr 1 has been sold, the nr. 2 will carry the same name. DUNAFARE for example.
But also newbuildings will carry a "NEDLLOYD -  " name every now and then. Also two Mærsk containers now carrying a Safmarine name! It is a sort of policy to satisfy shareholders. Child-style? Hobbyists think so. I am a hobbyist!


Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Phil English on November 09, 2010, 09:16:10 pm
I'm not sure what you mean Henk. P&O Nedlloyd was itself an amalgamation of P&O and the Nedlloyd Group until bought outright by AP Moller-Maersk several years ago. The P&O Nedlloyd brand was completely dropped and all P&O Nedlloyd-named ships were gradually renamed, though some ships retained the "Nedlloyd" name prefix. This, as I say, happened several years ago.

Nedlloyd and P&O Nedlloyd no longer exist as operating companies, so there will be no new ships bearing such names. On the other hand, when Maersk purchased the liner division of Safmarine, they decided to retain the Safmarine brand, hence ships are still being built or renamed with "Safmarine" names.

That is right Phil, but also Nedlloyd up till now did not ended within the Maersk company! For some reason (taxes or newbuilding government money?) they will use that neme in the future. One vessel named a year and the government is ........

Hi All

According to ShipAIS AIS traces, Histria Perla 9301287 changed her name to Astria Perla at 09:00 on 22 December, whilst at Nab Anchorage.  Neither Marine Traffic nor Southampton VTS have reported this change,and she was still listed as visiting Esso Fawley under the Histria name. Of course any change won't be reported in Equasis until their next Lloyds update.
Has anyone any proof of the change. 

Allan

Hi Allan,
Are you sure it isn't a typo?
Only Shipais shows that name. Marine traffic shows Histria Perla left Fawley yesterday with destination Dakar 8th Jan.

Title: Re: Renamings
Post by: Allan RO on January 02, 2012, 11:02:05 pm
Hi Kelvin

The change was definite, could not have been a typo, if you go back through AISlive history it definitely changed at 09.00 on 22nd.  Not sure yet if any of the Calshot lot got a pic.

If it is possible it would be most appreciated to attain a simple or detailed description of what EPBGB stands for and it's meaning. Any assistance offered here is highly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

Hello Nicolei,
interesting question you asked (if not in right forum thread). I found the acronym refers to East(ern) Pilot Boarding Ground "B" (there is also a EPGB"A"). There is a useful map of the anchorages here www.almarine.com.sg/aplchart.php although it seems that locally the acronym commences with the "P" for Pilot.

Hi all,

I received the following info today on "La Grande Dame" of the NZ shipping scene:


The vessel M.V. Westport was sold by Holcim NZ and was handed over to the new owners and taken out of New Zealand registry at Onehunga earlier today, new details as per below,

New name…….Fjordvik
Flag……Bahamas
Class…….Lloyds
Agents……..ISS McKays
Operators/Owners………SMT Shipping Poland/Cyprus

A full crew is now on-board with two Holcim employees assisting with operational handover. They are looking at departing in approx. one week for New Plymouth where in-water survey will be undertaken and Holcim staff depart before vessel commences overseas voyage to Europe.


Looking at the tide times for next week, it'll be either a late afternoon or early morning departure from Onehunga. I'll be super-sad to see her go, but at least she won't be going to the scrapyard.


Cheers,

JR
PS LR 7423249. The name suggests she'll be operating out of SMT's Norway base, across the sea from where she was built in Hamburg.
