PRESS RELEASE

June 25, 2015: United Arab Shipping Company's (UASC) newest vessel, the 18,800 TEU Barzan, has made its maiden call at the port of Felixstowe in Britain.

The biggest container ship in the UASC fleet, the mega-ship arrived at the UK's largest container port from Port Kelang in Malaysia. The Barzan is deployed on UASC's AEC1 service between Asia and North Europe.

UASC Barzan maiden callCommenting on the new arrival, Clemence Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Felixstowe and Managing Director of HPH Europe division, said:

"We are delighted to welcome the latest vessel in the UASC fleet to the port of Felixstowe. Our investment in new infrastructure, equipment, systems and people has ensured that we are the clear port-of-choice for the latest generation of mega vessels employed on the Asian trade.

"Our ability to handle these huge vessels will be further enhanced when the Berth 9 extension is completed at the end of the year. Beyond that we will continue to enhance facilities and improve still further levels of productivity. UASC's commitment to reducing environmental impact with this new class of LNG-ready vessels mirrors our own commitment to reduce emissions and the carbon footprint of our business."

The Barzan, named the world's most environmentally friendly ultra large container vessel, is the first of a series of six 18,800 TEU vessels being acquired by UASC for the Asia – Europe trade.

Barzan is also a part of the industry's first LNG-ready fleet and will set new standards for fuel and energy efficiency, due to optimized vessel design and an array of efficiency technologies. Preliminary calculations indicate an EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) value that is close to 50 percent below the 2025 limit set by the IMO. The new class of vessel has an overall length of 400 meters, breadth of 58.68 meters, depth of 30.6 metres and a draught of 16 meters.

As well as Felixstowe, the AEC1 service calls at Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Yantian, Port Kelang, Rotterdam, and Hamburg.
