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

Jiangsu New Yangzijiang Shipbuilding of China has delivered the 4,253 teu COSCO SURABAYA. The panamax-beam vessel is the penultimate unit 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.

The ship is to phase into the Far East to WCSA service that Cosco Container Lines operates jointly with Evergreen Marine. On this loop, the COSCO SURABAYA will replace the 3,850 teu DA HE.

At the end of September, Coscon is scheduled to take delivery of the final unit of the type, the COSCO AQABA.
