Cres ferry and Choo Choo motor yacht entered the dock

Two ships entered the big dock – Jadrolinija's Cres ferry and Choo Choo motor yacht – whereas the Dutch Virginiadiep, registered for carrying general cargo, between dockings in Bejaia, Algeria and Koper, Slovenia.
Virginiadiep is moored alongside the dock awaiting an intervention on the pipe system. To be more specific, adaptation of a tank and a part of the heavy fuel the oil system (HFO) pipeline into a diesel system will be made, and therefore also the cleaning and degasification of the right bunker fuel tank, as well as servicing of the rest of the pipe system. In addition, windlass bearing will be replaced.
Virginiadiep, a general cargo ship, was built in 2008. It is 118.55 m long, 15.20 m wide, with 4.80 m gauze and the load-bearing capacity of 7,778 DWT. It sails under the Dutch flag and has 10 permanent crew members on board.
On the Jadrolinija's Cres ferry, which is currently in the dock, complete corrosion protection with cleaning and painting of above-water and underwater parts of the trunk and the deck will be performed, and zinc anodes will be replaced. Furthermore, works on propellers, propulsors, main engines, vacuum system and air-conditioning will be done, and nozzles, fences, boom barriers and doors on board will be examined for complete safety of navigation. Safety and navigation equipment will also be examined. Works on electric installations will be performed, as well as works in the passenger lounge.
The Cres Ferry was built in 2005 in the Split shipyard. Over the years, it mostly sailed the lines related to the City of Rijeka. Its full capacity is 600 passengers and 100 cars.
The Choo Choo motor yacht will also undergo corrosion protection, but only of the underwater part of the trunk, with mandatory replacement of zinc anodes. The shaft and three propellers will be cleaned, as well as bow and stern thruster, and underwater valves will be serviced.
The Choo Choo is a pleasure yacht. It was built in 2010 in the Italian New Versilcraft shipyard. It is 31.93 m long, 7.10 m wide and is propelled by 3 Caterpillar engines which develop speeds of up to 35 knots.
Is should be mentioned that it is very lively in the small dock (DOK-4), too. Works on Novela yacht are still under way, and Nova yacht, which recently left the big dock, is now moored alongside the eastern side of the small dock where all the works will be completed.
