Great Harvest Maeta enters container sector with double acquisition

Hong Kong-based bulk carrier operator Great Harvest Maeta has made its debut in the container shipping sector with the acquisition of two secondhand containerships.

According to Alphaliner, Great Harvest Maeta has acquired the 3,534 teu sister ships HS Wagner and HS Debussy from German owner Hansa Treuhand.

Hansa Treuhand, a pioneer of the KG system, sought court protection in September and moved to halve its fleet of around 50 ships.

HS Wagner has been renamed GH Zonda and HS Debussy has been renamed GH Scirocco. Both vessels have been fixed to Maersk Line under a 24 month arrangement.

In addition to the two containership, Great Harvest Maeta operates a fleet of four bulkers made up of three panamaxes and one post panamax.
