New vessels for ACL

ACL Has ordered new vessels to replace the currrent 4 vessels that call on Halifax.

From the Press Release:

Atlantic Container Line has signed a contract with Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding to build the five largest RORO/Containerships (CONROs) in the world. The G4 (Generation 4) vessels will replace ACL’s existing fleet of G3 CONROs operating in the company’s transatlantic service. 

The new vessels will be the first of their type ever built. They will be bigger, faster, greener and more efficient than their predecessors. The G4’s will have a container capacity of 3800 TEUs plus 28,900 square meters of RORO space, with a car capacity of 1307 vehicles. Speed will be increased by 10%, yet fuel consumption per TEU will be reduced by 50%. The new ships will continue to employ cell-guides on deck, a feature that will allow ACL to extend an enviable record: its ships have never lost a container over the side during the last 30 years. All five vessels will be delivered in 2015.

    This newly plan to make a huge shipping vessels is great because more containers will be delivered on time you know sometimes when you tried to ship a thing sometimes it will sent for how many months before they receive your thing it’s great that more shipping lines are created to assure that your things are on time for delivering.
