Our vessels been built based upon leading designs enhanced by us and our manager, Danaos Shipping, in consultation with the charterers of the vessels, leading shipyards, and major classification societies (IACS members). These designs, which include the application of advanced technology, make the vessels in our fleet efficient in both voyage speed and loading capability when compared to many vessels operating in the containership sector.
Danaos achieved compliance with the International Safety Management Code as early as 1995.
It was the first Greek company to be certified by Det Norske Veritas, considered one of the most stringent of classification societies, and this was a full three years in advance of compliance becoming mandatory.
Danaos shares the commitment to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment for the community.
Our fleet systematically complies with or exceeds environmental laws and regulations, and our advanced system designs optimize fuel efficiency while reducing emissions.
Our manager, Danaos Shipping, is regarded as an innovator in operational and technological aspects in the international shipping community. A shared focus on the operational and technological aspects of our business helps us in providing customized, high-quality operational services in an efficient manner for both new and older vessels.
Container shipping is a segment of the shipping market where advanced operational capabilities are critical. Danaos and its affiliates invest heavily in all aspects of infrastructure, technology, and maintenance/inspection programs - with a continued goal of enhanced reliability.
Our pro-active application of international standards and regulations apply both on-shore and at-sea. As a direct result of these high standards, we have earned our status of ‘preferred carrier’ with charterers.
