Hong Kong-based shipowner Seaspan Corporation has added a new containership to its fleet today as it took delivery of the 10,000 TEU boxship Maersk Genoa.
The new vessel, which was constructed at Jiangsu Yangzi Xinfu Shipbuilding, is Seaspan’s eleventh 10,000 TEU SAVER design containership and fifth delivery in 2016.
Maersk Genoa will commence a five-year, fixed-rate time charter with Danish shipping giant Maersk Line, the company said, adding that “Maersk may extend the charter with two consecutive one-year options.”
The ship is the second of a total of two 10,000 TEU SAVER design vessels to be chartered by Seaspan to Maersk.
The delivery of Maersk Genoa expands the company’s operating fleet to 89 vessels with an age of six years.
Seaspan’s managed fleet consists of 115 containerships representing a total capacity of over 920,000 TEU, including 12 newbuilding containerships on order scheduled for delivery to Seaspan and third parties by the end of 2017.
