The latest new arrival at Southampton is the MOL Quartz (2013/151,963 gt). The Singapore-flagged vessel is the sixth in a series of ten 13,900 TEU container carriers being built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries for APL.
Originally intended to become APL Agile, she is one of five vessels subsequently chartered out to Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and renamed. The new build joined the G6-Alliance’s Asia to Europe Loop 7 in mid-September.
