News: New vessel UAL Texas!

On Saturday May 4th the MV UAL Texas has been launched at shipyard Bodewes in Hoogezand.

After the test voyage the MV UAL Texas will be christened by Mrs. Suzanne den Boef (granddaughter of Mr. Roger Jungblut, Owner) in Rotterdam on June 21st.

The UAL Texas (a sister vessel of the UAL Houston) was built in The Netherlands and is special because of the application of the Groot Cross-Bow® an innovative bow shape with wave piercing abilities. Because of the innovative bow shape the vessel will have less slamming and will easier maintain its speed comparing to more conventional bow shapes with bow flare. Because of this, energy will be saved and therefore less fuel oil will be burned, which results in reduction of the CO2 output.

Universal Africa Lines has been offering a regular liner service into West Africa from Europe, USA and South Africa for over 30 years. For more information please contact our office.
