Zim in and out

1. Zim Ontario ghosts in to Halterm this morning.

2. It is clearer when she sails this afternoon. The white reefer boxes are much in evidence.

The Zim ships keep to schedule despite their globe girdling schedule. Most Zim ships are named for specific ports, but for some reason they chose the entire province of Ontario for this one, which arrived and departed today.

Built in 2009 by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in Okpo, South Korera, Zim Ontario measures 50,963 gross tons and has a capacity of 4884 TEU. Of these up to 560 may be reefers.

Zim's reefer containers are painted white, so it easy to spot them, but it is harder to tell which ones may actually be loaded and using the reefer plugs.

The ship is owned by NSB Neiderelble and registered in Germany.
