CCNI has added a fifth 9,030 teu ship to its pipeline. The vessel has been ordered at Hanjin Subic Bay Shipyard in the Philippines.
Just as the four earlier ships of the series, the new vessel will be owned jointly by Grupo Empresas Navieras, the majority shareholder in CCNI, and by the Hamburg-based non-operating owner NSC Schiffahrt.
Scheduled for delivery in mid-2015, the vessel has been ordered for a price of USD 81.60 million. All five units will be compact wide-beam ships with a length of 300.00m and a beam of 48.20m (19 rows). The vessels will have provisions to carry up to 1,200 reefer containers.
