Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. ("K" Line) announced that it's TEU 8000 container vessel "HUMBER BRIDGE", will call Ashdod port on January 14th 2012. The vessel will be the largest container vessel ever to call in Israel. 
 
The vessel LOA 336.0m, beam 45.8m, capacity 8,212 TEU (Nominal 9,040TEU), service Speed 25.6Knot, gross tonnage 98,800 ton, has incorporated new environmental and safety aspects in the vessel hull design and onboard equipment. 
 
The vessel has a heat recovery steam generator which uses the heat from exhaust gas discharged from the main engine for generation of electricity. This reduces total fuel oil consumption and also results in reduction of CO2 emission.

The vessel will be deployed by the CKYH Alliance (COSCO, "K" LINE, Yang Ming, and Hanjin Shipping).
