Two new vessels in Neptune Lines fleet
NEPTUNE Lines Shipping and Managing Enterprises announce today, the addition of Neptune Hellas and Neptune Horizon to its fleet, raising the number of owned ships to 15.
The vessels were built at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in 2009 and 2010 respectively. They are near-sister vessels to another 6 Neptune Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) vessels, constructed in the same yard in recent years.
The Neptune fleet is steadily growing in both numbers and capacity, with the new vessels having a capacity of appx 3,800 car units each. This has been selected as an optimum size for the key activity areas of the company, i.e. 20 countries all around the Mediterranean Sea, up to the Atlantic ports of Spain and Morocco in the West and Black Sea ports in the East.
Melina Travlos, President & CEO, made the following statement:
“This move is a testimony to Neptune Lines continuous investment, year after year, on the provision of excellent services to our global automotive customers, as well as good and safe work conditions for our seamen and seawomen.
It marks once more the commitment to our history and values and to remaining on a path of perseverance and growth”.
