World’s largest container ship launched

Feb 26, 2015
Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd (HHI) has built the world’s largest containership, the first of five 19,000 TEU containerships ordered from China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) in May 2013. The ship has been named CSCL Globe.

The vessel, 400.0 m in length, 58.6 m in width and 30.5 m in depth, is as large as four football fields, and will be deployed on the Asia-Europe trade loop after being handed over to the owner later this month.

The CSCL Globe has 77,200 bhp electronically controlled main engine to enhance fuel efficiency by automatically controlling fuel consumption according to the ship’s speed and sea conditions. With the installation of the high efficiency engine, the container ship will burn 20 per cent less fuel per TEU in comparison with 10,000 TEU container ships.

HHI built the world’s first 10,000 TEU container ships in 2010 and since then it has built 82, the most number of container ships carrying more than 10,000 containers in the world.
