Special Projects Last month, a unique special cargo loading took place in the Port of Hamburg! For the first time, two ship propellers were put on board one of our vessels in a single loading – more specifically, on the “Sofia Express”.

The propellers will make it possible for the vessels to save 10-13 percent of their fuel and CO2 emissions, depending on the sailing conditions! Gain some special insights into the loading of the propellers.
