Pasha Hawaii receives new refrigerated containers as part of container replenishment program
The Horizon Enterprise arrived on the West Coast, carrying 600 new refrigerated containers as part of Pasha Hawaii’s container replenishment program.
The Honolulu, HI-based carrier will take on 600 new 40-foot high cube refrigerated containers and 400 new 45-foot dry containers in 2018. Pasha Hawaii will cycle out older equipment, reducing the average age of refrigerated container fleet by 2.7 years and 45-foot equipment fleet by 2.4 years.
The newly built containers arrived on the Horizon Enterprise as she returned from her regularly scheduled drydock; the vessel will re-enter the CHX service this week. The Horizon Enterprise vessel drydock included modifications that will increase the vessel’s capacity for the high-demand 45-foot equipment by 80 slots per sailing, similar to the updates made to the Horizon Pacific last year.
Installation of additional reefer plugs on the M/V Marjorie C has been completed as well, bringing the total from 150 to 220 on the ConRo vessel.
