Germany-based company Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) informed that it has taken on the management of the 20,146 TEU MOL Tribute, one of the newest vessels in Mitsui O.S.K. Lines’ (MOL) fleet.
As disclosed, the newbuilding was handed over to BSM’s Hong Kong ship management center on July 10, 2017.
The ultra large container vessel (ULCV) was recently completed at Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in South Korea.
The 196,877 dwt MOL Tribute features a length of 400 meters and a width of 58.8 meters.
MOL Tribute’s sister vessel, MOL Tradition, is scheduled to enter Hong Kong management at the end of August, BSM said.
“Through these significant milestones, BSM becomes part of a very select group of operators that have the expertise to manage some of the world’s largest containerships,” the company commented.
