The last ship of the former South Korean shipping line Hanjin Shipping was sold for breaking up on Mar 1.
The Hanjin Rome, 65,184gt, had been under arrest at Singapore since last August and after her sale by the Singapore Supreme Court, the ship left Singapore on Mar 2 for Chittagong for scrapping.
A total of 97 container ships, with a capacity of 617,000 teu that were operated by Hanjin Shipping when it filed for receivership on Aug 31 last year, have now been sold, returned to their owners or recovered by creditors.
Five of the former Hanjin container ships are to be deployed in the first service of the newly-formed SM Line, part of the Samra Midas (SM) Group, of South Korea.
The ships are Hanjin Bremerhaven, 74,962gt, Hanjin Budapest, 74,962gt, Hanjin Port Kelang, 75,061gt, Hanjin Tianjin, 74,962gt, and Hanjin Xiamen, 74,962gt, and all were built by Hyundai Heavy Industries, of South Korea, between 2006 and 2007.
