MV NYK Hercules

After five new container ship debuts in May, NYK Hercules (2013/141,003 gt) became the first maiden caller at Southampton during June. The 13,208 TEU vessel is one of four ships being chartered from Singapore-based OOCL by Japan’s Nippon Yusen Kaisha.

Completed by Samsung Shipbuilding and Heavy Industries in April, the 336m NYK Hercules is fourth in a series of ten neo-overpanamax ships ordered in March 2011. The final vessel is scheduled to be delivered in April 2014.
