These vessels have a deadweight all told (DWAT) of 30,000 mt, each with four cranes, having a combined lifting capacity of 640 tons, and are equipped with intermediate decks for optimisable loading capacities. While the title to the vessels will pass to ZEABORN by the end of September, they are already available to the shipping company without any restrictions.
