NYK VestaToday we have the NYK Vesta (IMO: 9312808, Port of Registry: Panama) featuring as the Ship of the Day. We could have chosen the cruise ship MS Rotterdam, but since the Rotterdam is currently arriving every week at Rotterdam, the Nyk Vesta stepped up to take the first place today. The NYK Vesta is 338 meters long, almost 46 metres wide, has a gross tonnage of 97,825 tons and a TEU capacity of 8,600. She is propelled by a B&W 12K98ME engine which delivers approximately 87,000 horsepower. The vessel was built in 2007 by Hyundai Heavy industries and is equipped with the most advanced environmental safety measures, including an electronically controlled engine and a specialized hull structure to prevent fuel-oil leakage. The NYK Vesta was the third ship of four identical NYK vessels which have been built between October 2006 and April 2007. Her sister vessels are: NYK Vega, NYK Venus and NYK Virgo

The NYK Vesta arrived last night at the ECT Delta Terminal coming from Hamburg.
