CSAV Lluta for Fairview Cove

With Hapag-Llyods recent merger with CSAV, we now seem to be getting a regular stream of CSAV Vessels on the PA1 Service. this may continue, or it may simply be a matter of the line shifing its ships as newbuilds come on line.

Today brought the arrival of CSAV Lluta. Built in china in 2009, she is owned by Schlter K & Co, and has a capacity of 4200 TEU making her smaller then the normal vessels on the service.


Another random charter for Hapag Lloyd

Today brought the arrival of Quadriga to Fairview Cove. Built in 2008, she carries 3400TEU which is considerably smaller then the vessels they normally run. The recent changes may just be due to periodic maintenance, or Hapag is shuffling vessels due to new 14000TEU new-builds coming on line, and additional capacity to Halifax via the G6 Alliance.


Virginia for G6

Todays G6 Arrival to fairview cove is the Virgina, formerly APL Virginia. Owned by NSC Schiffahrts GmbH, she is of the same yard and Design as Zim Haifa, Zim Beijing and Zim Savannah, all of which are regular callers in Halifax.

She was built in 2005.
