Kiel Express

Kiel Express (west bound) arrived this afternoon to join sister ship Stuttgart Express (east bound) at Fairview Cove. They are two of eight Hapag-Lloyd ships built between 1991 and 1994 of 53,783 gross tons and carrying 4639 TEU. She is seen above in Bedford Basin, with the tug Atlantic Larch alongside, ready to make the turn around Seaview Point for Fairview Cove.

Kiel Expresss was built as Hanover Express, in 1991, but her name was appropriated by a new Hapag ship in 2007, one of their 93,750 gt, 8749 TEU giants, built to run from Asia to Europe.
