I always loved his great photos from Curacao. A very special place for a special man.
I'll miss him. Condolences to his family.


Unfortunately no new information. I fear it will take some time until we have a new article in our newspaper. :(

According to our local newspaper “Nordsee-Zeitung” the shipping companies MSC and CMA CGM plan to lengthen up to 21 of their container ships in China, including "MSC Daniela" (14.028 TEU) and "CMA CGM Christophe Colomb" (13.344 TEU). According to a report by the trade journal "THB", the shipyard Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Company (BSIC) in Qingdao has already booked orders from both shipping companies. However, MSC and CMA CGM have not yet confirmed this information.

MSC therefore plans the conversion of eleven ships. CMA CGM seems to have placed an order for the conversion of five vessels with an option for a further five units. An extension of 30 meters to 396 meters is under discussion, which would increase the capacity of the ships to around 17.000 TEU. For MSC this measure is reported to affect eleven vessels of the "MSC Daniela" class. They had been delivered between 2008 and 2010 by Samsung shipyard. At CMA CGM, the "CMA CGM Christophe Colomb" delivered by the Daewoo shipyard in November 2009 and their sister ships "Laperouse", "Magellan", "Amerigo Vespucci" and "Corte Real", which were put into operation in 2010, are planned to be used for the capacity expansion.

Hi shipimages,

very interesting side! I was pleased to see so many English produced models. These are rare to get here in Germany. Personally I prefer in Germany Mr. Wiedling from Grünwald. Here's the link:

Usually you get your models within three days maximum in Germany. He has a great stock of models and always the newest ones. Or I buy at "Galerie Maritim" in Hamburg.

Hi folks,

the five ones built by HDW in Kiel, Germany were
NORASIA SAMANTHA (II) (yard no.336)
NORASIA SAVANNAH (yard no.337)
NORASIA SALOME (yard no.338)
NORASIA SHEBA (yard no.339)
NORASIA SCARLETT (yard no.340)

They were all delivered in 1998 except NORASIA SCARLETT in 1999. They nicknamed this type "Container Frigates".
The ones from China were built by Jiangnan Shipyard, Shanghai. At the moment I only know NORASIA SALWA and NORASIA SHEREEN. Both built in 2000.


I learned that she will come to Bremerhaven on 09.12.2009. But I just don't know exact time. Maybe on CMA CGm webside we'll find some info...

Hi David,

I saw lots of photos of her construction on Dutch webside "Kustvaartforum" as she was built by Volharding shipyard in Harlingen, The Netherlands. I think the webside is named

There you have to browse the different threads. so did I the last months.

I only made a photo of the vessel when she was in Bremerhaven for final hull paint. Or you can try to get informations from Beluga webside in their news category.

Interesting for me to learn about her history. I took some photos of her last year in Valetta.

Seemed to me as if she was there for conversion works.



here's a video from German webside.
