Cargo Vessel WILSON FLEX I – Aerial Photography – 23.03.2022

On Wednesday 23rd March the 2022 built ship WILSON FLEX I was photographed from the air by MALTA SHIP PHOTOS around 25 nautical miles offshore Malta on her maiden voyage.

She’s the first ship in a new series of 5 coastal vessels ordered by German joint venture shipping company Rhenus-Arkon Shipinvest GmbH & Co.KG, Germany (RHAS) and designed by Groot Ship Design who take care of the design, naval architecture, construction and system engineering.

She was built in China at Dayang Offshore equipment Co Ltd as yard number SH100 with 88.60 Metres as length and a beam of 14.54 metres. She’s homeported at Madeira in Portugal (PRT) and radio callsign as CQEZ6.

The highly efficient Hanse Eco vessels, complying with stringent emission standards, will be an important next step forward to improve sustainability in European Short Sea Shipping.  A total payload of 4,200 tonnes can be transported on each voyage.

She will be operated under a long-term service with Norwegian shipping company Wilson and will sail will on European short-sea traffic routes ranging from the Baltic Sea to the North Sea and even the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

From here we wish Capt. Dmitrii Vasilev and his crew safe navigation together with RHAS for the great cooperation and professionalism during this operation.
