Schoeller Holdings has taken delivery this week of the 32,000t dwt multipurpose vessel AAL HONG KONG. Ordered in January 2008, the ship is the eighth unit in a series of identical sisters from Shandong Huanghai Shipbuilding. She follows the AAL MELBOURNE, now trading as HYUNDAI INCHEON, which was delivered in February.
The ship is equipped with four cranes, including two 350 ton units which can work in tandem to hoist loads of up to 700 tons.
The new AAL HONG KONG has joined Austral Asia Line, a member company of the Scholler Group, on the carrier’s China-Korea-WCNA multipurpose service, where she joins two of her earlier sisters.
