The vessels are designed for Cie Maritime Nantaise for efficient cargo handling and are specialized for 20’ ISO containers (TEU), including reefer containers, IMDG cargo, RoRo cargo, such as trucks, trailers and project cargo, such as generators, tanks etc.
The vessels were built by Hyundai MIPO and delivered in 2013 and 2014.
Tender Design, including:
"It is no coincidence that the two ARK newbuildings, also due for imminent delivery, are externally quite similar to the MN Calao. While the intake is comparable at 3,000 versus 2,838 lanemetre, the Danish ARK project has opted for two slow speed main engines and twin propellers, but with a somewhat higher output and service speed. However, the ARK GERMANIA is over 35 m longer. This reveals that the internal layout chosen by the designers KNUD E. HANSEN A/S is highly efficient and probably superior to the Stralsund project".
