BLRT Grupp Reduces Environmental Impact

For the first time the repair and painting of vessel in the dock using a protective cover at the Tallinn Shipyard. Construction of covering for Kelly vessel with length of 132 meters and width of 16 meters, belonging to the Estonian shipping company Hansa Shipping, lasted several days. A protective net was stretched between the dock fences and the deck of the ship, metal structures – trusses were installed and then covered with a high-strength awning. This type of coverage enabled to diminish the penetration of abrasive particles and paint into the air, thereby significantly reducing the environmental impact. In addition, this shelter allows to perform such work regardless of weather conditions, significantly reducing vessel’s repair time. Kelly vessel joined the fleet of Hansa Shipping in February of this year and is currently the largest in the fleet.
