#More45ftUnits - Irish Continental Group's (ICG) Eucon, one of three container divisons, which operates Ireland-France/Belgium 'feeder' services, have increased their 45ft unit capacity.

The 300 new 45ft units were manufactured at the CIMC factory in Nantong, China.

This latest batch is a continuation of the container fleet renewal program over the last 4 years which has seen the addition of 1,100 new 45ft units to the fleet since July 2012.

The new units will be incorporated into the container fleet from September 2016. The boost in capacity will further improve the overall quality of services offered to the 'feeder' services. 

Eucon has a container fleet operated by eight vessels.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
