These very compact container ships have a capacity of 3,400 TEU (3,400 TEU corresponds to 3,400 standard container of 20’ size) will be built at the company’s yard Nordseewerke in Emden. This 3,400 TEU Vessel meets the charterer’s requirements for worldwide trade. Thus, this ship type can be employed successfully for feeder traffic as well as for line operation.
