Damen Shipyards to build more Combi Freighters for Turkish Feyz Group

Damen Shipyards has received a new order from Turkish Feyz Group for a Combi Freighter (CF) 5000 and an additional CF 3850, just four weeks after a contract was signed for three CF 3850s. The Feyz Group is currently renewing its fleet and the fast delivery times that Damen achieves through its policy of building in series enables them to respond quickly, the companies said in a statement. 

Designed for general cargo like the other models in the Damen Combi Freighter family, the CF 5000 shares many of the core design attributes of the CF 3850. 86.60m  in length, it has a hold capacity of 7,000m³ and can carry up to 5,080 tonnes of cargo or 164 TEU containers. It also offers the possibility to have four tween decks that can be assembled to form two bulkheads in the hold for even more versatility. Lashing points are provided at all the desired locations and there are container fittings on the tank top and hatches. The tank top is certified to carry loads up to 15 tonnes per square metre and the vessel has classification approval for dangerous goods and loading aground.

Engin Aynaci, general manager of Feyz Group, commented: “Due to the positive market reaction to our recent order from Damen, we have decided not to wait and will proceed with renewing our fleet without wasting any time. With these new orders, we are enhancing the versatility of our fleet, while simultaneously maintaining interchangeability and improving reliability, thanks to Damen’s standardisation philosophy.”

The vessels are scheduled for delivery at the end 2024.
