M.H. Simonsen expands with two ships
Two tankers named Silver Kenna and Silver Freya now switches to the Danish flag and are based in Svendborg. The shipping company M. H. Simonsen must ensure cargo and crew for the two tankers. During Easter, the two ships will be docked at Petersen & Sørensen Engineworkshop in Svendborg.
The two product tankers from Silverburn Shipping Isle of Man will henceforth be operated by the Svendborg company M. H. Simonsen who will be in charge of chartering, operations, technology and staffing. The two product tankers are approximately the size of the company's own tankers.
The two vessels were built in China five years ago. Originally they sailed with the Gibraltar flag, after which they were registered in the Netherlands. Now they have switched from the Dutch flag to the Danish flag and are registered in the DIS.
Fyens.dk observed the 93 meter long and 15 meter wide Silver Kenna in the dock at Petersen & Sørensen Engineworkshop at Frederik Sea in Svendborg. According to manager Poul Sækmose the ship should be painted, bottom treated and have done various jobs in machinery and shaft.
The tanker was first programmed in Marstal, but it proved too heavy to dock at Ærø. Before the ship was docked in Svendborg, Silver Kenna had a longer stay in Nyborg Lindholm port to have its tanks cleaned for transportation of a cargo of tar.
