Newbuilding Vessel Delivery Details Vessel name M/V Eleranta Ship type Bulk Carrier DWT 73,222 Hull number IMO number Builder Samsung Heavy Industries, Geoje, South Korea Delivery date 16 May 1995 Ship operator V Ships (UK) Ltd WBT coating scheme 2 x 125µm dft Intershield 300 (ENA300 series) Cathodic protection No sacrificial anodes 2. Inspection Details Location China Shipping International Shipyard Co. Ltd (CSIS), Changxing Island, Shanghai Date 24 June 2010 In-service period 15 years Docking reason Class special survey; Routine maintenance Classification Lloyd s Register Attendees WBT s inspected Andrew Cass (International Paint, Worldwide Marine, Bus. Dev. Manager) Qian Lei (International Paint Shanghai, Technical Service Manager) Tang Ding (International Paint Shanghai, Technical Service Representative) Chief Officer (V Ships (UK) Ltd) No. 4 Starboard Topside tank Forepeak tank No. 1 Double Bottom tank Page 2 of 17

3 3. Summary of Water Ballast Tank Inspection Results No. 1 Double Bottom Tank Assessed as Good by Class. Minimal maintenance or repair carried out throughout the 15 years. Some corrosion on underside of cargo holds caused by reverse impact damage but coating system still intact and performing well in the immediate surrounding areas. Edges, weld seams and cut-outs in excellent condition. Hopper tanks also in excellent condition, with only a few very minor areas of corrosion. No. 4 Starboard Topside Tank Assessed as Fair by Class. This is largely as a result of structural repairs required from stress areas, rather than breakdown of the coating. Some general corrosion on the deckhead caused by highly corrosive micro-environment and damages on the reverse side of work carried out on the main deck. Some maintenance of coating system carried out in service using a (non-ip) solvent-free ballast repair coating. Edges, weld seams and cut-outs generally in very good condition with some corrosion on erection joint areas. Forepeak Tank Some general corrosion evident, particularly around tank access areas. Good corrosion protection in complex areas with some localised breakdown on scallops, manual welds and mechanically damaged edges. 4. Superintendent Comments The cleaning of the areas to reveal the true nature of the coatings beneath is impressive, as the casual observer would consider the discolouration as staining of the coating. The few inserts insisted upon by LR were as a result of stress and fatigue of the metal and not due to any coating corrosion. In fact, the removed panels exhibited coating in good condition on both sides, which was impressive given the aforementioned material fatigue. My own opinion is that the main fabric of the TST s is still well protected and edge failure around scallops is to be expected. The photos are representative of the tank conditions.
