One of the Italian crude oil double hull tankers owned by Navigazione Montanari SpA, the 2004 built VALTAMED called at Palumbo Malta Shipyards for drydocking on Monday 26th September, 2022.


She was built at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co Ltd at Geoje in South Korea as VALTEVERE (same company) and delivered on 15th September 2004 with Registro Italiana Navale (RINA) as ship class.

Interesting thing was that her propeller was not in brass as expected but red, same with the antifouling –

Assisted by 4 tugs as per above images, inspection of her whilst drydocking since she was going to be sold were done.

On Saturday 8th October she shifted to Parlatorio Wharf and on Sunday 9th October she left Grand Harbour from Dock 6 as per below images for the last time.
