Hapag-Lloyd to deploy CSAV's new 9,324-TEU Cisnes

GERMANY's Hapag-Lloyd has taken in charge the wide-beam 9,324-TEU Cisnes, the sixth of seven sister ships by CSAV from the Samsung Heavy Industries in 2013.

The same-size ships are is fitted with 1,400 reefer plugs and suited to the South American perishables trade and meant to replace chartered 6,500-TEUers.

Hapag-Lloyd took over the CSAV ships when the two ocean liners completed the merger of their container shipping businesses in December 2014 and the CSAV-owned units were transferred to CSAV Company Container GmbH, a German company wholly-controlled by Hapag-Lloyd, reported Alphaliner.

The Cisnes will be deployed on the Far East-west coast South America loop 2, one of three services launched this month by CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, Hamburg Sud and CSCL as part of a shake-up of their FE-WCSA trade routes.

MV Cisnes

 MV Cisnes, the sixth of the series of seven new container vessels ordered to Samsung Heavy Industries in April 2013, was delivered today in Geoje, South Korea. 

A large container carrying capacity with last generation fuel saving systems to operate at low as well as high speed, are some of the main features of these seven new containerships. The fuel consumption of the main engine will be approximately 7% less than the vessels received from 2011 and around 25% lower than the average of vessels of this size currently in operation in the industry. They also have a 4.5% increase in the cargo capacity.

These containerships have a slot capacity of 9,300 Teus and can reach speeds of 10 to 22 knots at maximum load. They are fitted with 1,400 plugs for refrigerated containers and their Twin Island design allows for maximum use of spaces, increasing the capacity of cargo on deck and keeping the dimensions within ranges that are very convenient for manoeuvres.
