Half-time for Schoeller: The Chinese shipyard Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard (GWS) has delivered the third of six new container ships.

This is a delivery from the series of ships with a capacity of 2,713 TEU. This was ordered via Schoeller’s subsidiary Green World from April 2021. The “Cape Skagen” is now the third of these newbuilds to enter service. Previously, the “Cape Scott” and the “Cape Spencer” were put into service.

Schoeller receives six Sdari ships

All ships are units of the so-called “Sealion” design from Sdari, of which ten have already been built – three for Schoeller, four for SITC and three for TS Lines. They are almost 190 m long and 32.20 m wide. Powered by a MAN B&W main engine, they have an output of 13,700 kW and a service speed of 19 knots.

All Schoeller newbuildings have charter contracts with the French liner shipping company CMA CGM. The Cyprus-based shipping group had a total of 16 ships in its order book at the Wenchong shipyard in Guangzhou. In addition to the “Sealions”, four feeders with 1,930 TEU each have already been delivered. Six 32,000 tdw freighters are under construction for the heavy lift shipping company AAL.
