November 2009: 5 November the Sartor Shipping new build project VS 465, achieved an important milestone by the keellaying. In modern shipbuilding this is done by the assembly of the first block (block DB1) of a total of 28, in the drydock. This event was celebrated with representatives present from the shipyard, Bureau Veritas and Sartor Shipping's site representatives.
