After the hull conversion of the vessel including an additional 30 meter section, on February 13th, 2016 we were able to bring in the MV “Hermann Schepers” for a three year lasting charter for account FSL Far Shipping Lines in Singapore.
The vessel will be deployed in a liner service between the ports Singapore, Port Kelang and Colcata.
The basic design of the vessel is a Volharding 750 TEU with high ICE class E3.
The deadweight of the vessel now is about 13.000mts, the nominal container intake increased to 1.000TEU respectively 727 TEU at 14mts homogeneous loading.
The new measures confirm a Gross Tonnage of 9.755 GT which, related to her size, can be considered as extraordinary good in competition to vessels of the same segment.
The speed and consumption figures of the vessel, although lengthened, remain unchanged, i.e. only 26,50 tons of IFO 380 at a speed of 16 kn.
We are glad that we were able to do this extraordinary conversion with the partners involved.
