During the 1990's (1990-93 ?) several former Belgian minesweepers were sold to Denmark for BU by Orla's Produktforretning.
The vessels were MSC and MSI. MSC: HEIST M 929, ROCHEFORT M 930, NIEUWPOORT M 932
MSI: KORTRIJK M 472, LOKEREN M 473, SERAING M 480, DINANT M 484
Two others were maybe also BU there: MSC KOKSIJDE M 933 and MSI HUY M 479.
I'm looking to know when did the various vessels arrived at the breaking yard and when work began. Did the vessels arrived there by own power or in tow ?
Any info is welcomed !
