MV UAL Cologne started its maiden trip from Aberdeen via Antwerp to various destinations eg Takoradi, Luba and Pointe Noire in West Africa last week.
The UAL Cologne 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 it’s 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 www.ualalliance.com
