The design of these two ships allows for a high intake of 9 feet 6 inches high containers and two hatches can accommodate 45 feet containers, including the 2.5 meter wide palletwide containers now widely used in the intra European trades. However, they have been designed in such a way that they could be switched to break bulk or bulk operations if required.
The vessels’ nominal container capacity is stated to be 1287 TEU, 775 TEU being on deck and 512TEU below deck. At 14 tonnes homogeneous, the container capacity is 910 TEU. Further flexibility is provided by two 45 tonne Liebherr shipboard cranes, making the ships fully self sustained. An MAN B&W main engine, developing 11,060 kW at 127rpm, provides sufficient power for a 19 knot service speed at 90% micron.
