Thursday, June 15, 2000
Flender Werft delivered the second of a three-part RoRo series to owners Wagenborg Scheepvart on April 28. Named Schieborg, the 602 ft. (183.4 m) vessel will be put to service between the ports of Gothenburg and Zeebrügge for Finnish-Swedish forestry product group StoraEnso. Designed to carry heavy paper and cardboard supplies transported in the StoraEnso Cargo Units, the vessel is equipped with specially fabricated tall containers, whose measurements of 45 x 12 x 12 ft. (13.8 x 3.6 x 3.6 m) exceed the conventional 40 ft. container.

The company uses approximately 900 units of these containers, which can hold up to 70 tons of paper for the combined rail and sea transportation of their products. Built according to Bureau Veritas standards, the Dutch-flagged vessel's propulsion is provided by a long-stroke cross-head Wärtsilä diesel engine with an output of 10,920 kW at 135-rpm.
