Delivery Universal Baltimore
9th of January, 2012
The third 57.000 tons bulk carrier in Universal Marine’s fleet, the Universal Baltimore, has been delivered on the 7th of December 2011 by the Chinese yard. Below pictures have been taken during the christening of the ship in Shanghai. The ship was baptised by Mrs Sabine Kuhl, partner of the director of Euroteam Chartering BV, Mr Gerard Glazenburg.
As usual, the Chinese yard went big with firework and lion dance. Fortunately, the inclement weather had no effect on the festivities.
The vessel will go into a pool with Thorvald Klaveness Group after delivery. The ship will trade worldwide.
