Those vessels were tied up in Trieste for quite some time, after ADCL, let them go.

MSC ASLI is now sailing between Israel and North Adriatic ports ( Koper, Trieste )... Last week was their first voyage up here.

MSC still has a number of these ships in its service incl. f.inst. MSC ASLI often calling at both Helsingborg and Gothenburg, Sweden on roundtrip to Antwerp.

Indeed, if even relatively sound German-built container ships of fifteen years old are going for scrap each week, then these oddities surely won't survive their third Special Survey!

These ships were originally owned by CSAV/Norasia but sold to Abu Dhabi Container Line (ADCL) in 2001. They proved to be disastrous for ADCL who ended up in bitter dispute with various parties over repairs and performance issues. They were eventually sold at auction to V. Ships (UK) Ltd. who gave them the English County names. They have been further sold twice since, to Allocean and then to Lomar after the failure of the former company. All in all, they have had very chequered careers, are expensive and non-competetive in today's market. Hence, they are being laid up and gradually boing sold for demolition

Odd looking creatures, I remember seeing one of them in the Persian Gulf a few years back.
Does anyone know who owned/managed them when they had English county names?

Bet odds give 1.2 to 1.4 :p
