The Ithaca Marine fleet is technically maintained by our partner Dalex Shipping, a market leading technical management firm with more than 50 years of experience in global shipping operations. Their maritime technical team consists of highly skilled, experienced engineers who ensure Ithaca Marine vessels operate at peak efficiency.
Dalex engineers perform all routine and necessary repairs and maintenance in a prompt manner, in compliance with all relevant international shipping standards and regulations. Supervising engineers also board and inspect our vessels to confirm adherence to standards. Ithaca Marine vessels are closely monitored by Dalex engineers and technical crew to proactively identify any repair or maintenance issues. As needed, they perform proper specification and scheduling of the vessels’ surveys, dry dockings, as well as shipyard selection.
Self-loading and discharging, the handysize vessels in our fleet are highly versatile, transporting a wide variety of bulk commodities to ports and terminals with limited infrastructure, and length and draught restrictions. Additionally, Ithaca Marine’s ships are heavier construction loggers equipped to carry timber to small and large ports worldwide.
