Germany builds third container carrier for Russia’s Far East co.

A German shipyard has built and floated a third container carrier for a Russian shipping company in the Far East, a company spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Under a contract, the container vessel will be the last out of three carriers built by Aker Ostsee yard in Wismar, Germany, for Russia’s Far Eastern Shipping Company (FESCO). The carriers will be the largest in Russia.

“The last touches on the vessel will be made on the water,” said FESCO spokeswoman Veronika Kazakova. “The testing of the container carrier, FESCO Bratsk, has been scheduled for September 5.”
