Frigg W christened

The Frigg W was christened on Wednesday, 31 January, during a launch ceremony at Rotterdam’s Wilhelminakade. The ship is the first in a series of four ‘multi-purpose’ vessels operated by the Dutch shipping line Cargow between Rotterdam, Norway and Reydarfjördur, Iceland.

The main freight for this scheduled service is Icelandic aluminium, which will be transported to Rotterdam in weekly shipments. All in all, the annual cargo flow amounts to nearly 1 million tonnes. The vessels also offer room for project cargo and 100-TEU reefer containers.

The four new vessels will not only expand Cargow’s capacity, but they are also more sustainable than the vessels they will be replacing. The new series is being built at the Taizhou Sanfu Ship Engineering Co. shipyard in Taizhou, China.
