BG Freight Line Charters Four Feeder Vessels

Dutch shipping company BG Freight Line, a fully owned subsidiary of Peel Ports Group, is to receive new tailor-made short sea container feeder vessels which would be deployed in the company’s Irish Sea Hub services.

The four vessels, currently being built by China’s Zhoushan Changhong International Shipyard, are scheduled to enter service during 2018.

The new green containerships, hired under long-term charter deals, were developed by BG Freight Line operation with ARKON Shipping as project initiator/commercial manager, technical managers Jüngerhans Maritime Services, and designers CIMC ORIC.

They will be fitted with a modern wet scrubber system for exhaust cleaning in order to fulfil the requirements for trading within the ECA area, according to BG Freight Line. The vessels are also fully fitted for the loading of 45 feet short-sea containers in all positions, with room in total for 488 units.

All parameters of the vessels have been optimised for the trade between the North Continent, Ireland and the UK, the company said.
