Consolidating the world’s most advanced shipbuilding technologies, the pure car carrier DRIVE GREEN HIGHWAY was inaugurated in 2016. Inside her immense 200 meter-long by 37.5 meter-wide hull, 13 decks comprise a vast area of approximately 67,000 square meters, allowing as many as 7,500 cars to be loaded. The deck heights are variable, enabling the accommodation of high and heavy cargo.
Equipped with the latest environmental technologies including those that reduce NOx and SOx emissions, she is a next-generation car carrier.
The total surface area available for cargo is approximately 67,000m2. This is equivalent to five Yankee Stadiums.
