The Sea Giant – NYK Hyperion, 2013 built vessel, is the fourth ship calling at Poland’s Deepwater Container Terminal(DCT), Gdansk, pertaining to G6 alliance. An extension of Loop 7 service has been made to the Baltic adding Gdansk to their ports of call. At Baltic, Gdansk is the only port having the capacity of accommodating vessels exceeding 13,000 TEU.
