The world’s largest containership was delivered to the Swiss Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) from South Korea last week.
Samsung Heavy Industries said that the unit is the first from a batch of six 23,000 TEU-class vessels ordered by MSC in September 2017. The company has another five such ships on order at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME).
Named MSC Gulsun, the 400-meter-long containership was delivered three weeks ahead of schedule, according to Samsung Heavy.
With a width of 61.5 meters and a height of 33.2 meters, the unit can carry 23,756 20ft containers and represents the largest vessel built for the container shipping industry to date.
It is equipped with a next-generation smart dispensing system and exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers).
