The South Korean shipping line Hanjin has taken delivery of the 4,600 teu vessel HANJIN SCARLET this week. The new ship is the second of three small overpanamax units which Hanjin ordered in January 2011 at Samsung Heavy Industries for a reported price of USD 62 Mio per unit.
The gearless HANJIN SCARLET is 250.00m long and 37.40m (15 rows) wide and offers provisions for up to 500 reefer containers.
In the coming days, the new vessel will join the ‘PNH’ Far East to WCNA service of Hanjin, where she replaces the 4,800 teu panamax HANJIN MUNDRA. Yang Ming, Coscon and K-Line participate in the loop though slots.
