Photos/Video: Old & New Oleander Cross Paths

March 18, 2019 | 1 Comment

It was a case of ‘seeing double’ this morning [March 18] as the new Oleander passed by the old Oleander, which was departing the island after serving our import needs for almost 30 years.

This occurred as Bermuda Container Line’s new custom-built Oleander arrived in Bermuda from China on Friday, and the old Oleander was sold, renamed the Oleander III, and made what is likely her last voyage from Bermuda after the arrival of her replacement.

BCL previously said, “The new Oleander can accommodate up to 456 twenty-foot containers, including 75 refrigerated containers. The ship is fully compliant with new global environmental emission requirements and ballast water treatment standards. The new vessel is also ‘LNG Fuel Ready’ to enable a conversion to LNG fuel should future fuel economics warrant a change.”

NGL President and CEO, Barry Brewer, previously stated, “Bermuda importers require a reliable weekly schedule for their businesses. The arrival of the new Oleander represents the culmination of years of research, planning, designing and construction. We look forward to proving the service capabilities and performance of BCL’s newest Oleander vessel.”
