LR classed Alexandros and Aristotelis are the first of five new 5,000 teu new ships, all to be delivered from HHI Gunsan by June 2013, that sees Capital expand its operations into the container sector.

Capital Shipmanagement has marked the delivery of their new containerships, Alexandros (on charter as Hyundai Prestige) and Aristotelis (on charter as Hyundai Premium) delivered at HHI Gunsan, respectively, last month and on Monday this week.

The ships are equipped with AMP (Alternative Marine Power System), often known as a ‘cold ironing’ system facility, where shore can provide electrical supply while in port with maximum power of 3.2 MW. This is a system where a container vessel can, whilst in port, shut down its generators and 'plug' into the shore power. This reduces emissions from the exhausts whilst in port. It is not yet a widely used system but is particularly suitable for container vessels, which traditionally have a high consumption in port in order to run their generators for the reefer containers. In addition to this, each ship's main engine has advanced automatic surveillance, performance, evaluation and diagnostic systems.

The ships are also fitted with an ‘X’ – twisted full spade rudder. The benefits of using such a rudder is that a twist in the upper and lower part of the rudder blade prevents cavitation and associated erosion problems developing as a consequence of rotational flow aft of the propeller. The vessels are designed for one man bridge control and capable of sailing at slow and super slow speeds.
