|THE NEW VESSEL "GIANNUTRI"|
The second bulk carrier of the D’Alesio Group Company has been delivered in Korea
Thursday 5 January, at the Korean shipyard Hyundai Mipo, the M/V Giannutri, the second bulk carrier of the Supramax special class of 56.000 dwt of Dalmare S.p.A. was delivered.
This vessel, like its twin M/V Montecristo, delivered at the same shipyard last June, has also been baptised with a name of an Island from the Tuscan archipelago as testimony of the bond that the Livorno ship owners have with their region.
The Sponsor of the vessel was Elisa D’Alesio, who attended the ceremony with her father Nello (who has been at the helm of the Livorno Company together with his brother Antonio for more than forty years) and her brothers Antonio and Francesco, with their respective families.
Nello D’Alesio has underlined that the quality, the safety and respect for the environment at sea are elements inscribed in the DNA of the Livorno Group and that, notwithstanding a negative world economic situation, the Company has been able to respect all the undertaken commitments.
As a matter of fact, the M/V Giannutri is classified as a RINA Green Star 3 Design and it has been built in compliance with the highest technical standards of the International industry as far as safety and environmental protection are concerned; made up of 5 holds and fitted with 4 cranes for cargo movement, it is able to operate with highest safety standards in any International port, also those not have suitable equipment.
''With the delivery of the M/V Giannutri and of its twin the M/V Montecristo, we bring to a close our significant investment with the Hyundai Mipo shipyard in which we have built eight vessels overall – says Nello D’Alesio, Executive Vice President of the D’Alesio Group – and with whose work we are extremely satisfied, in terms of quality and timeliness”
With an Italian and foreign crew of 20 people, under the command of Master Luigi Massagli Romani, the new bulk carrier will be employed on the main International routes. At the moment, entered into service on the spot market, the vessel is being used for the transport of wood pellets between Canada and England.
The delivery of the M/V Giannutri marks the complete renewal of the Dalmare fleet, for a total of 14 vessels from 2.512 to 56.000 tonnes (amongst the most sought after within the industry thanks to their greater governability and employment flexibility), with an average age of 4.2 years and equipped for the transport of oil products and of “dry bulk”.
