Evergreen takes delivery of 13,808-TEUer from Enesel for A-E service
TAIWAN'S Evergreen shipping line has taken delivery of the 13,808-TEU THALASSA TYHI from owner Enesel SA, a Greek company piloted by London-based NS Lemos & Co. The vessel is the eighth ship in a series of ten neo-postpanamaxes ordered by Enesel in July 2012 from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), with the backing of 10-year charters to Evergreen. The THALASSA TYHI has an overall length of 368 metres and a beam of 51 metres allowing 20 container rows on deck, reports Alphaliner. Enesel concluded the order for US$116.5 million per ship, a fairly low price compared to the $160 million to $170 million paid by other owners at the peak of the market in 2008. After a bunkering trip to Russia, the Thalassa Tyhi will join Evergreen's Far East to Europe service CEM. The loop is part of the CKYHE alliance offer but branded NE 5 by the old CKYH partners. This service will be fully upgraded from the 8,500-TEU class to 13,800-TEU ships by October. The new vessel follows the THALASSA MANA , which was handed over in July. The two remaining ships of the series will be delivered in the next two months. Source : Asian ShipperUpload News
