MV Elan is a container feeder vessel of the Sietas-168 type, built by the Sietas yard in Hamburg. Since May 2005, the Elan has been part of the JR Shipping fleet.
The Elan’s competitive advantages include the best possible loading capacity and flexibility, her high service speed and highest ice class. In May 2008, the original vessel was lengthened. Consequently, the Elan’s capacity increased from 868 to 1,008 TEU. Now, the Elan is capable of transporting 720 14-ton loaded containers.
