Coming soon… the largest containerships ever built
the current record holder >
yundai Heavy Industries (HHI), the world's
biggest shipbuilder, has begun building the first
of five 19,000 teu containerships for China Shipping
Container Lines (Hong Kong) Co Ltd.
The original order was upgraded from five 18,400
teu containerships to ones capable of delivering 600
more containers. These new ships will be the biggest
ever built and the first of the 19,000 teu ships is
due for delivery from November this year.
The huge ships will leave CSCL with the bragging
rights about having the largest containerships in
service, until the next order comes along!
JUST HOW BIG IS IT...?
