Six more mega-ships for Hapag-Lloyd

[ June 24, 2021   //   ]

Hapag-Lloyd has ordered another six ultra large container vessels of over 23,500teu from South Korean’s Daewoo. They will have dual-fuel engines that can use liquefied natural gas (LNG) and deliveries are to begin in 2024. The German-owned liner operator has already placed an order for six ships of the same size at the end of 2020. The vessels will be deployed on the Europe-Far East routes as part of THE Alliance.
