Samskip, which operates services from Grangemouth, Teesport, Hull and Tilbury, has taken ownership control of two newly-built Damen 800 container vessels. The 804TEU ships, Samskip Innovator and Samskip Endeavour (both 7,987gt), were completed in January and have entered service on the Samskip vessel network. The vessels measure 140.64m by 21.8m and are powered by a single MAK 9M43 engine of 8,400kW giving a service speed of 18 knots.
Samskip Endeavour made her first voyage from Rotterdam to Dublin and her next from Zeebrugge to Waterford. Innovator’s first voyage was from Rotterdam to Immingham/Hull and the next two voyages from Rotterdam to Tilbury.
