Overhaul for Ice-class chemical tanker.

Transocean Turkey secured the drydock for the Italian shipowner Finbeta at Gemak Shipyard in Tuzla.

Finbeta S.p.a. is an Italian shipping company based in Savona and controlled by the Bertani family which operates a fleet of chemical parcel tankers.
The Bertani family links with shipping go back to 1937, when Cesare Bertani, father of the current chairman – Giovanni – acquired his first vessel.
Following an intense Newbuilding program, Finbeta’s fleet today consists of a number of very modern, high quality, sophisticated chemical tankers incorporating all the latest technical and safety features. Through a program of continuous training our team of highly skilled professionals is fully familiar with the latest technical and safety developments and allows the company to offer its clients an efficient and trouble-free service.
