May 9 - Nordana is to commence operations for its new additional Mediterranean service in the middle of June, 2014.

The Nordana Med Service will provide new connections into Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Black Sea ports, while also improving frequency on some of the major ports already serviced in Egypt, Lebanon and Turkey.

Initially the service will have a 30-day frequency with timing aligned to Nordana's Mediterranean-Americas service schedule.

The new service will be operated by the Nordana vessel Stjerneborg, which has two 36-tonne capacity cranes and was previously engaged in the Mediterranean-Americas service.
