Lisco Gloria to be broken up in Klaipeda


On February 16, 2011 DFDS Seaways’ badly damaged ro-pax vessel Lisco Gloria leaves Odense under tow for her last voyage to be broken up at Klaipeda by BLRT Grupp’s subsidiary Vakaru Refonda. BLRT’s spokeswoman Katja Ljubobratets says to Shipgaz that the vessel is expected to arrive at Klaipeda on February 20 and that the company expects the scrapping process will take five months. The Lisco Gloria became a total loss after a fire in the Southern Baltic Sea, which started after midnight on October 9, 2010 on an eastbound voyage.
