CLdN orders two more ro-ro freighters

CLdN has today confirmed the order of an additional two 5,400 lane/metre vessels from the Korean shipyard, Hyundai, with options for a further four of the same class

This order complements the previously announced firm orders for four vessels - two 5,400 lane/metre ships and two 8,000 lane/metre ships. The latter will be delivered within 2017, and are likely to be placed on the Zeebrugge-UK trade, which will, immediately in parallel, facilitate a large expansion of the Rotterdam and Zeebrugge-London service.

To complement these orders and prepare for expansion, a new 59-ha facility at Albert II Dock, Zeebrugge will be opened in Q2 2017 (C.Ro Ports Division)..

CLdN RoRo SA had previously announced its intention to add 12 new vessels to its fleet over the coming years, of which six are now confirmed and with additional options for a further four.

The company describes the additional orders as excellent news, keeping us on track to meet the target of 12 new additional vessels to expand the fleet by 70% of today’s capacity. "These additions, coupled with the massive expansion of our Zeebrugge Port facilities, will allow CLdN to replicate the hub and spoke concept developed in the recently expanded Rotterdam facility.

"We will, with immediate effect, have our Iberian services, from Rotterdam to Santander and Leixões, call twice weekly into Zeebrugge also. This will open up a new market segment and also allow direct shipments from all ports served by CLdN, in one transaction.

"In addition, we will also direct new builds to serve the Scandinavian corridor, where the present vessels are not optimum for this trade. We will start ramping up for their arrival immediately, in preparation for their deployment during 2018.

"We are two years into the four year vision outlined by CLdN and are pleased to be well ahead of predictions on all fronts, with some exciting developments in the pipeline."
