MAJ who, with the traditional cutting of the rope, released the vessel Palanca Rio“ into the sea.
The President of the Management Board of 3.MAJ shipyard, Mr Domagoj Klarić, on behalf of ULJANIK Group and the shipyard 3.MAJ, addressed everybody present at the ceremony and expressed that: Our aim and decisiveness in ensuring the quality of constructed ships and respecting the specific wishes of the buyer enables us to maintain our business relationships and entice to return those who have previously decided to build in 3.MAJ. This is confirmed by our relationship with Wisby Tankers who have continued collaboration with the 3.MAJ shipyard, even after the process of restructuring and privatisation as well as its becoming part of the ULJANIK Group. We wish both the godmother of the ship success in fulfilling her tasks and the vessel calm seas – was concluded by Klaric.
