WISMAR / ROSTOCK-WARNEMÜNDE: At Thursday 13 March, Aker Yards Germany in Wismar and Rostock-Warnemünde delivered the fifth container ship of the newly developed type Aker CS 2100 which fulfils the latest international requirements. With yard number 146 a series of five container ships for Conti Reederei in Munich (Bavaria / Germany) was completed. The ship management for all ships of the series was taken over by Niederelbe Schiffahrtsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG in Buxtehude (Lower Saxony / Germany). The ship delivered was named CONTI DAPHNE by Estela Sibione, spouse of Captain Marcelo R. Sibione, President of shipping company Maruba SCA in Buenos Aires /Argentina), the same day. It will leave the yard on Friday (March 14) under its charter name MARUBA ASIA with destination Santos (Brazil) to be integrated into a charter service of Maruba between Brazil and Ecuador (South route).
The type Aker CS 2100 which can also be delivered in a shortened version as Aker CS 1900 is characterized by high and flexible container loading capacity, environmental compatibility at low fuel oil consumption and high reefer container capacity. Due to special equipment for safe transport of containerized refrigerated goods the ships of this type have the class notation RCP. The propulsion concept, consisting of two environmental-friendly 4-stroke-engines coupled to a controllable pitch propeller via reduction gear, offers exceptional advantages if beside the normal sea service long coastal passages with reduced ship speed are a vital part of the trade pattern. In this mode, one engine can be switched off and declutched while the other engine is running under optimal load levels at low emission and low fuel oil consumption.
