Naming ceremony of M/V Federal Alster

31 Oct 2016 - by Intership Navigation

Intership’s latest new building, the MV FEDERAL ALSTER, was christened by her godmother Jessica Pathy on 31st August 2016.  Jessica is the wife of Mark Pathy, CEO of Fednav International.

FEDERAL ALSTER is a box-shaped ‘Lakesmax’ bulk carrier with a dwat of 36,500mt.  The vessel is the first in a series of three under construction at New Times Shipbuilding in Jingjiang, China.  All three vessels will enter a ten-year charter to Fednav, where they will be employed alongside their ‘older’ sisters. These vessels will have fuel savings of up to 10 t/d compared to Intership’s earlier series of Lakers, owing to state-of-the-art hull optimization and economic propulsion concept.
Federal Alster is on her maiden voyage now, carrying steel products from China and Korea to Hamilton/Canada.  We wish Capt.Piskorz, C/E Jonca and the entire crew smooths seas and safe sailing.
