The 2,556-teu Hammonia Emden and Hammonia Husum (both built 2006) are said to have been fixed for three to four years at $11,500 per day, with delivery in September to November this year.

The ships have 600 reefer plugs and have been fixed at a significant premium to the market. Rates have been shooting up with Maersk taking a number of vessels of this design for niche trades that require a large number of reefer slots.
