Piraeus Port Authority (PPA) managers were no doubt heaving a sigh of relief when the former NEL Lines ferry European Express was towed out of port yesterday and hauled off to the Turkish shiprecycling centre of Aliaga.

For its final voyage the 15,100-gt European Express (built 1974) was switched from the Cypriot to the Togolese flag and its name was shortened to Express.

The European Express has been an especially troublesome vessel during the four years it was a permanent resident in Piraeus following the collapse of NEL, which had chartered it from a Cypriot affiliate owner Mega Stars Lines.

It spent several years tied up at the Drapestona mole, where broke free from its moorings, colliding with and damaging other ships before given more secure moorings at a shipyard in Perama.

Last year the PPA had to take emergency measures to prevent the ship from sinking after springing a leak.

No less than seven auctions of the ship were held before a buyer stepped forward to acquire the ship.

Greek sources say that Cosco, the new operator of the Port of Piraeus, has adopted a hard line against the many ships that have been laid-up alongside wharves and in anchorages under its control for many years. It is pushing hard for their expedited sales and removals.

Ro-pax ferries form a large percentage of these abandoned ships, although their number is likely to decrease when the 5,600-gt Penelope A (built 1972) comes under the hammer on 6 February at the behest of the National Bank of Greece.

Όμορφο, σβέλτο και καλοθάλασσο πλοίο, δυστυχώς έμελλε να έρθει σε ελληνικά νερά στην τελευταία περίοδο της ΝΕΛ. Του είχα συμπάθεια κι ας μην το είχα ταξιδέψει πολύ.

Ευτυχώς έχουμε τις φωτογραφίες να το θυμόμαστε !
