ACL expects to order ships in 2011

 

 

Atlantic Container Line expects to order new ships in 2011 to replace its aging fleet of five G3 container-roll-on/roll-off ships operating between the United States and Canada and North Europe.

Andrew Abbott, ACL’s chief executive officer, said the company expects to finalizing a design for the replacement ships early in the year and begin discussing the order with shipyards after that.

 

Abbott said the company hopes to have slightly more capacity in the new ships, but said their length and other dimensions would be about the same because of restrictions posed by locks in Liverpool and Antwerp where ACL calls as well as the Chesapeake and DelawareCanal, which it traverses on port calls to Baltimore.

 

The company's Web site said the five current ships have capacity for about 1,850 TEUs of container and 1,000 TEUs of ro/ro space and car decks with room for 1,000 units.
