Angelika for Eimskip

1. Angelika nears Halterm, with the tug Atlantic Oak nudged up to the starboard quarter. Note the hull sponsons, built out to give the ship the correct width to carry a full deck load of containers.

The German owned Angelika registered in Antigua and Barbuda arrived today for the Icelandic operators Eimskip.

Owned by Intersee Shiffs of Haren (Ems) Germany, it is one of nearly sixty ships in the fleet, most with women's names, ending in "a".

This one is a versatile multi-purpose vessel, built in 2004 and measuring 7769 gross tons, 10,500 deadweight. It is fitted with two 80 tonne cranes and can carry a wide variety of bulk and general cargoes or up to 675 TEU (only 421 loaded). Chief attraction for Eimskip with this ship would be the 60 reefer plugs, since much of Eimskip's export cargo is frozen fish.
