Well, well, such quaint names....wonder if they are conveying a monetary meaning?
Henning Brauwers on Feb 15, 2019 06:32 (6 months ago)
HHL Valparaiso = "Treasury one"
HHL Venice = "Treasury Three"
The names will probably change again once an buyer has been found

Well "albula", re the HHL RIO DI JANIERO she seems to be moving to another owner and another new name, from Beluga, then to HHL and now to Spliethof.

Hi Henning, do you happen to know their new names?
Henning Brauwers on Feb 15, 2019 02:54 (6 months ago)
Some of the P1/P2 types are sailing und the names of Treasury one / two / three.
Henning Brauwers on Feb 15, 2019 02:49 (6 months ago)
HHL Elbe, HHL Tyne, HHL Amur, HHL Mississippi and HHL New York have been bought by Spliethoff

I heard that Spliethof from Amsterdam is very interested

re the HHL RIO DI JANIERO fate, I don't know Sinisa. she is still moored in Valletta harbour. Maybe awaiting sale or maybe also auction. I will post any development re her fate.
Sinisa Aljinovic on Feb 14, 2019 11:06 (6 months ago)
HHL declared bunkraptcy.Is it sold to someone?
