Hapag-Lloyd orders six ultra large container vessels of 23,500+ TEU

- Order placed at Korean ship yard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering

- Vessels will be powered by LNG Dual Fuel

- Delivery starts in April 2023

- 1 billion USD investment

Hapag-Lloyd has signed an order for six ultra large container vessels. The Korean ship yard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering will build the 23,500+ TEU vessels and deliver them to Hapag-Lloyd between April and December 2023.

The vessels will be deployed on the Europe - Far East routes as part of THE Alliance and will significantly increase Hapag-Lloyd's competitiveness in this trade. As part of Hapag-Lloyd sustainability strategy the vessels will be fitted with a state-of-the-art High Pressure dual fuel engine, which will be extremely fuel efficient. The engine will operate on LNG, but has alternatively sufficient tank capacity to operate on conventional fuel.

Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd said: "With the investment in six ultra large container vessels we will not only be able to reduce slot costs and improve our competitiveness on the Europe - Far East trade, but also take a significant step forward in modernizing our fleet. Additionally we will further reduce our environmental impact."

The investment will be around one billion US Dollar. The respective financing has already been secured.

International School Augsburg (ISA): Investment in den Rohstoff Bildung

Die in Gersthofen bei Augsburg ansässige International School Augsburg (ISA) plant als erste internationale Schule in Deutschland den Gang an die Börse und macht damit erstmals das Thema „Bildung“ unter ESG-Kriterien investierbar. Die ISA, an der derzeit rund 330 Schüler eingeschrieben sind, ist als internationale Schule Teil eines globalen Schulnetzwerkes, welches das in Deutschland anerkannte IB-Diploma als Hochschulzugangsberechtigung anbietet. Im Rahmen des geplanten Campus-Neubaus sollen die Kapazitäten erweitert und damit die hohe Nachfrage nach privaten Bildungsleistungen in Deutschland und in der Region erfüllt werden. GBC-Analyst Cosmin Filker hat mit dem ISA-Vorstand Marcus Wagner gesprochen.
