ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems gets new order for two additional ships of the new 3,400 TEU container ship family
ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems - a company of ThyssenKrupp Technologies - has got the order to build two 3,400 TEU container ships. These very compact container ships have a capacity of 3,400 TEU (3,400 TEU corresponds to 3,400 standard container of 20' size) will be built at the company's yard Nordseewerke in Emden.
This 3,400 TEU Vessel meet the charterer's requirements for worldwide trade. Thus this ship type can be employed for feeder traffic as well as for line operation.
The customer is the Leer-based shipping company Hartmann. After having delivered two 2,700 TEU ships in 2004 and 2005 to the Hartmann shipping company, this new order underscores the strong ties between the ship owner and the shipyard.
With this new order, the order books of the Nordseewerke shipyard include five units of the 2,700 TEU class and four units of the new 3,400 TEU class. Together with the existing Naval contacts, these orders guarantee a utilisation of the yard's production capacities until the year 2009.
