Seaspan Takes Over MOL Efficiency (Japan)

Seaspan Corporation announced yesterday that it accepted delivery of a 4600 TEU containership, the MOL Efficiency. The containership was constructed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. in 2003 and expands the Company’s operating fleet to 71 vessels.

The MOL Efficiency is on charter to Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. (“MOL”) under a two-year, fixed-rate time charter. The ship is the sixth of a total of eight vessels to be chartered by Seaspan to MOL.
