Icelandic shipping company Eimskip is to receive 875-TEU Lagarfoss

ICELANDIC shipping company Eimskip is to receive 875-TEU Lagarfoss, the first of two geared containerships ordered from China's Rongcheng Shenfei SB Co in September 2011 at a total price of US$50 million. 

The delay of a year for both vessels meant the price tag dropped by $11 million, reported Alphaliner. 

The Lagarfoss is to join Eimskip's Iceland-UK and Rotterdam fortnightly service, the 'Yellow Line' and to replace the 724-TEU Selfoss as of mid August from Rotterdam. 

It will have a cargo of brand new reefers purchased in China, and goods carried within the frame of the recently signed free-trade agreement between China and Iceland. 

The Lagarfoss and sister vessel are based on the 'Mawei 870' design which is fitted with 231 reefer plugs and offers a commercial speed of 18 knots.
