Damen launches Combi Freighter 3850 for Reederei M. Lauterjung in Vietnam

Damen Shipyards Group launched a Combi Freighter (CF) 3850 at the Ba Son Shipyard in Vietnam on 24 April 2024. The CF 3850 is the first in a two-vessel order from Germany-based shipping company Reederei M. Lauterjung.

Following this order, Damen’s client has placed an order for a third CF 3850. The vessels are to be named MV Arion, MV Hestia and MV Neptune.

The orders for the CF vessels mark the first time that the family companies have worked together. Reederei M. Lauterjung Managing Director Kay Lauterjung says that his company was attracted to Damen as a result of its track record and the high renown of the CF 3850 design in the industry.

“We contracted Damen for these three CF 3850 vessels due to the shipbuilder’s excellent reputation, high quality standards and state-of-the-art ship designs. This is the first time we have constructed a vessel in Vietnam, and we have full confidence in Damen to oversee the success of the project. We are pleased to see the project proceeding smoothly and punctually and are very happy with the excellent cooperation with Damen and the Ba Son shipyard. We look forward to taking delivery of the MV Arion in summer this year, and to further strengthening our cooperation with Damen in the future.”

Upon delivery, MV Arion and MV Hestia will enter into a long-term charter with Amadeus Schiffahrts- und Speditions, a subsidiary of HGK Shipping. Under the term of the charter agreement, the vessels will operate under the names Amadeus Pearl and Amadeus Ruby.
