EVER GIFTED

The ULCS EVER GIFTED departed from the Amazonehaven ECT terminal today. This 400 meter long ship can carry 20388 TEU containers. When we left port we passed bij a sister ship , the EVER GOODS who was inbound to take her berth. With a draft of only 12 meters, the wind area and her sensitivity to wind is something to keep in mind.

POLAR ECUADOR from Maasvlakte 2 to sea

On boarding the POLAR ECUADOR at the APMT2 terminal in Maasvlakte2, there was still some cargo to be completed. This was an excellent opportunity to film the completion of cargo operations on a containerschip before sailing, in a time-lapse movie.
