One of MSC's St.Lawrence service regulars, MSC Angela arrived again today to "decant" some cargo.
The ship is noted for its exceptionally high superstructure, which allows for a high deckload. On arrival from Sines, Portugal today, the deck was stacked to a maximum of five containers. When it was here in March I noted that the deckload was reduced to four high before it sailed for Montreal.
The ship was built by Zhejiang Yang Fan Shipbuilding Co Ltd as 41,225 gt, 50,628 dwt vessel of 4254 TEU including 550 reefers. When built it was considered to be a Panamax ship, but is now an "old" Panamax size.
