Jiangsu New Yangzijiang delivers COSCO VALENCIA (4,253 teu)

Jiangsu New Yangzijiang Shipbuilding of China has delivered the 4,253 teu COSCO VALENCIA. The panamax-beam vessel is number 14 in a series of 20 sister ships that Coscon ordered in late 2007 and early 2008 and whose deliveries have been deferred as a consequence of the economic crisis.

In a few days, the ship will phase into the CKYH-alliance’s Coscon-operated Asia-USEC loop ‘AW2’/’AWC’, on which the newbuilding replaces the 4,510 teu COSCO KAWASAKI. The Chinese carrier operates a fleet of nine ships of 4,200 teu to 5,000 teu on the ‘AW2’/’AWC’. The service links China and Japan to New York, Boston and Norfolk with underway calls at Lazaro Cardenas (Mexico) and Cristobal (Panama).
