Evergreen Line has announced to increase the weekly capacity of its CEM service by phasing in 3 13,806 TEU vessels. The three ships are all sister vessels of THALASSA HELLAS, which started deployment on CEM service in September 2013. In addition to THALASSA PATRIS, which replaced HANJIN HAMBURG (8,588 TEU) in December 2013 and THALASSA PISTIS which replaced EVER LADEN (9,200 TEU) on January 26th, 2014, THALASSA EPIDA will be the fourth vessel with a capacity of 13,806 TEU on CEM. THALASSA EPIDA will be deployed from March 23th, 2014, on and will replace EVER LEGACY (9,200 TEU). The average weekly capacity of CEM will thereby increase from 9,150 TEU as of September to 10,000 TEU by the end of March.
The new 13,806 TEU vessels are all part of a series of 10 sister ships Evergreen ordered to be built at Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipyard. The vessels are currently the largest operated in Evergreen’s fleet. There are 10 vessels deployed on the service. The overall rotation time of 77 days and the port rotation stay unchanged.
