April 27 - A naming ceremony has been held for NileDutch's latest newbuild vessel NileDutch Antwerpen at IMT Terminals in Antwerp.
NileDutch Antwerpen is the third of four newbuild bespoke container vessels being delivered to the company for use in its West Africa - Far East service. The vessels will be registered in the Netherlands and fly the Dutch flag.
The dimensions and deck equipment of the four new vessels are tailored to the ports they will serve in West Africa, said NileDutch. Each ship will have a capacity of 3,510 teu, with a length of over 224 m, beam of 34.8 m and draft of 12.5 m.
The second newbuild - NileDutch Dordrecht - was named back in January at PSA Singapore Terminals. http://www.heavyliftpfi.com/news/second-niledutch-newbuild-named.html
