FESCO Fleet Grows with General Cargo Ship Addition


Two new container vessels of 40t capacity has been added to the general cargo fleet of FESCO Nevelsk which already has a deadweight of almost 6000 t with container capacity of 511 TEU. The vessel is for transportation of containers, general and bulk cargo, says a report published in Dry Bulk Magazine.

FESCO Nevelsk is equipped with two modern electro hydraulic cranes with a lifting capacity of 40 t each. So, the ship can unload in ports that do not have their own cranes, and also work in raid conditions with reloading to other vessels and specialised barges, including delivery to unequipped shore.

The New Vessels

FESCO Nevelsk started working with the container vessel FESCO Nagaevo on the coastal container service FESCO Korsakov Direct Line (FKDL), connecting Vladivostok and Korsakov (Sakhalin Island). The placement of the second vessel on this line made transportation to be more regular and rhythmic and to provide sufficient volumes of capacity. Shipment from Vladivostok to Korsakov are carried out twice a week, the duration of a circular voyage is seven days, transit time of delivery is two days from the date of departure of the vessel.

Before leaving for the first voyage to Korsakov a new vessel was visited by Vladislav Kim, the director of FESCO branch office in Vladivostok and Igor Sharkov, the chief engineer and the director of the technical department, who inspected the ship and checked its readiness for the passage.
