UASC YanbuToday we have the recently delivered UASC Yanbu (IMO: 9415844, Port of Registry: Monrovia, Liberia) as the Ship of the Day. The UASC Yanbu is the second of three vessels ordered by D. Oltmann Reederei. She was built by Hyundai Heavy, Korea and delivered in december 2009. She is currently operated by United Arab (chartered from China Shipping) in her Asia/Europe Container 2 service (AEC2). The vessel is 304 meters long, 40 meters wide and has a maximum teu capacity of 6,600. She has a maximum speed of 26.5 knots, however she is deployed in UASC's service to make slow steaming possible on the major trade lanes to save on fuel costs through the slack season. This additional vessel joins UASC's AEC2 service fleet of nine 6,900 teu (A7) vessels previously deployed on the service.

The UASC Yanbu is scheduled to arrive later tonight at the APM Terminal, Rotterdam.
