Almost every square meter of deck space was used. Aside from a row of yachts, the vessel had loaded a number of tanks for a brewery project in Thailand. Rickmers Tokyo is the second of nine identical Superflex Heavy Multipurpose Container (MPC) vessels built for Rickmers in China between 2002 and 2004. The Superflex MPC vessels are designed for the carriage of breakbulk, heavylifts and project cargo and can lift up to 640 tons with their onboard cranes.

Build time for the $6 million project was 12 months, with delivery to the OFT last February. GL Rejects BV's Hostile Takeover Bid The Executive Board and Supervisory Board of Germanischer Lloyd advised its shareholders to reject a hostile takeover offer by Bureau Veritas.

"We do not need Bureau Veritas. On the contrary, a hostile takeover would jeopardize the continuation of our business success thus far," said Executive Board Member Rainer Schöndube.
