Hamburg-based Vega Reederei has placed orders for four 1,868-teu containerships with China’s Yangfan Group.

This is not the first time Vega has used Yangfan — the company bought a series of boxships from the Zhejiang-based yard prior to the financial crisis.

The new vessels are designed by the Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute and will have standard Bangkokmax dimensions with a length of 172-m length and 27.5-m beam.

Two of the ships are slated for delivery in October and November 2022, and two in December of 2023.
