Slovene Ships - Maribor

<p>​The multipurpose ocean-going cargo vessel Maribor was the third in the series of five sister ships commissioned by shipping company Splošna Plovba in Japan in 1976 and 1977. The other ships were the Kamnik, the Velenje, the Kranj and the Celje.<br> <br>They were built in Osaka by the Japanese shipbuilders Mitsui Engineering &amp; Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. Given the needs of its round-the-world line at that time, Splošna Plovba decided to build an improved version of the standard-type Concord 18 ship, which in addition to general and bulk cargo could also carry containers and heavy cargos.<br> <br>All five ships had an automated engine room, main engine control from the command bridge and modern navigation and communication systems – including, for the first time in the history of Splošna Plovba, a satellite positioning device.<br> <br>Although the Maribor was mainly intended to serve the needs of the round-the-world line, it was also engaged in the tramp trade, on the Mediterranean–Pacific–Mediterranean route and, eventually, by Splošna Plovba's Singapore-based subsidiary.<br> <br>The Maribor, built in 1976, was the first ship in the Splošna Plovba fleet to bear this name. It continued to sail for the Slovene shipping company until 2009, when it was sold to the Chinese, who scrapped it that same year.<br> <br>It had a length overall of 147.7 m, a beam of 22.9 m and a deadweight tonnage of 18,487 tonnes (gross tonnage 12,117, net tonnage 7,304). It was powered by a 6,913 kW (9,400 hp) Burmeister &amp; Wain/Mitsui diesel engine and had a speed of 13.5 knots.<br> <br>Duška Žitko, Jože Utenkar</p>
