New Generation Container Feeder Vessel Debuted

Monday, January 15, 2001
Knud E. Hansen, Copenhagen has developed the next generation of container feeder vessels. The new generation was inspired by inquiries from major clients for these size feeder vessels. The superior efficiencies of the KEH MARK 1200 and 1500 have been achieved by making extremely compact vessels by using the experience gained from the KEH Mark V, Mark VI S, Mark VI, Mark VII and Mark X all designed by KEH, numerous ships of these designs have been build over the years. Compared to the competition, KEH has managed to design the vessels one FEU shorter, one box wider, with lines requiring less horsepower for the same capacity and speed, but also resulting in improved stability and a lower GT versus the container capacities. The ratio between container intakes and positions are 71 percent and 72 percent respectively. The total container capacities of Mark 1200 and 1500 respectively are 1212/1536 TEU or 860/1110 TEU homogenously loaded 14 tons/TEU. The KEH MARK 1200 is fitted with 250 reefer plugs and Mark 1500 is fitted with 400 reefer plugs. Vessels build to KEH's designs are known for fetching the highest resale value. The latest example, last year was the sale of two 5-6 years old vessels KEH Mark X, which fetched nearly 100% of the current newbuilding price of the same size vessel.
