The first ten vessels are scheduled to be delivered in 2013 and 2014 and the second set is expected to be delivered in 2014 and 2015.

This, the largest and greenest next generation of container ships will have a twin propulsion system, with two slow running ultra-long stroke engines driving separate propellers pluis two 3 MW Shaft Generator Motors (SGM)

A core element of the service agreement is the development of effective maintenance programs.
