NYK Venus is one of the largest ships of NYK Lines, with capacity for 8,600 containers (TEU). The vessel is pretty large and the measurements, which she has are amazing for container vessel from middle class. Of course if you compare this vessel with Emma Maersk or some other vessel from highest class, this will not be something interesting. But in spite of this NYK Venus is large and has a good capacity and the builder designed this ship to be profitable and very useful for the ship-owner. The length of NYK Venus is 338 meters and the width 46 meters. The ship has gross tonnage 97,825 gross tons. And so large vessel will need of large engine, which should have enough power to move this ship with high speed of at least 24 knots, because one container vessel needs of higher speed. The main engine of NYK Venus is MAN B&W 12K98ME, which has approximately 87,000 horsepower. The propulsion system is very strong and improved, to give to the ship a higher speed and the maximum speed of the ship is about 25.2 knots, while the cruising speed is about 24.5 knots.
The vessel NYK Venus was built in 2007 by Hyundai Heavy industries. The ship is well designed and built from high technology. NYK Venus has also three more sister-ships NYK Vega, NYK Vesta and NYK Virgo, which are among the largest container of the world. We already wrote about the ship NYK Vega, and you know much about her. Now is the day of NYK Venus. NYK Venus is designed with newest and most modern structures. The ship has a hull design with special shape and construction to prevent fuel-oil leakages.

The ship is sailing on regular routes between the Eastern Asia and Western Europe. Also sometimes visits USA and Canada. NYK Venus is one of the most beautiful container ships built ever. That is why today we paid attention to this ship. Because this is one really interesting container vessel is constructional point of view.
