Flender Werft Launches Containership Santa Elena

On September 8, Flender Werft launched its latest containership, SantaElena, for shipowner Claus-Peter Offen. Eva Maria Zehm, spouse of Flender Werft's chairman of the board, acted as the sponsor for the vessel. The ship is a further development of the Flender series FW 1200-4500, vessels which are reportedly distinguished by effective economy and a large stowage capacity of 14-ton containers at low fuel consumption. The vessel will be classed by Germanischer Lloyd.

Propulsion is executed by a crosshead engine of the long-stroke MAN B&W 8L80MC type, having a rating of27,440 kW at 93 rpm. The engine transmits its power to a CP propeller plant. For electrical power at sea,SantaElena is fitted with a shaft generator having an output of 1,500 kW. Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for December, after which it will enter into a five year charter contract with Messrs. Senator Lines. Flender Werft has won a follow-up contract for five additional vessels to be built for the same owner after delivery of the current project.
