The construction of a prototype for a new-generation container ship: The new ship, with a capacity of 2,900 containers, lies in Kvaerner's 320-meter-long dry-dock prior to its launch in the spring of 1996. Norway's Kvaerner corporation - Europe's largest shipbuilder with 56,000 employees worldwide - now owns this shipyard, in which the German state has a major financial stake.
