World's largest Con-RO

22nd Jun 2015

On 22 June 2015 m/v Jolly Palladio, the fourth and last in a row of four ro-ro container vessels, has been delivered to the Italian shipping company Ignazio Messina & C. by the South Korean yard STX Offshore & Shipbuilding in Jinhae, thus completing the building project of the owners' claimed world's biggest con-RO vessels ever built to date.

Construction and delivery of all vessels have been carried out under the supervision of a SeaQuest site team, formed by multinational expert inspectors, which also included a few owners’ provided elements.

These vessels are the second stage of a new building plan that the Genoa-based shipping company has undertaken with Korean yards: the previous four vessels had been built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. and delivered between end 2012 and beginning 2014, again under the supervision of SeaQuest.

The STX built vessels are 240 metres long by 37,50 wide; with a 3.900 TEU and 6.350 metres of ro-ro cargo capacity, 21.5 knots speed and equipped with high-tech anti-pollution system such as an innovative gas cleaning system able to operate both in navigation and in port.

The construction of the new logistics and support vessel (LSV) ordered by the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organisation (NDLO) for the Royal Norwegian Navy, has formally started with the Steel Cutting ceremony in DSME’s yard in Geoje island, S.Korea, under the supervision of SeaQuest.

A site manager, coordinating all aspects of the site office work, inspections and testings, and a project manager, responsible for overseeing project development and progress, complete the personnel deployed by SeaQuest to perform the LSV construction supervision.

The vessel is scheduled to be delivered to the Royal Norwegian Navy in Autumn 2016.
