MSC undocks 24,116 TEU mega boxship

Extremely-large containership with a capability of 24,116 TEUs constructed for Mediterranean Transport Firm (MSC), the world’s largest ocean provider by operated container vessel capability, has been undocked at Hudong-Zhonghua’s shipyard in China.

The vessel, deemed the world’s largest containership to date, was undocked on 1 August on the shipbuilder’s Changxing Shipbuilding Base.

Mentioned to signify a brand new document for Hudong-Zhonghua, the containership named MSC Tessa surpasses the lately delivered 24,000 TEU-class Ever Alot by 112 TEUs.

Collectively, the 2 ships point out the rise within the development of the world’s ultra-large containerships led by Chinese language shipbuilders.

The newbuild is independently designed by Hudong-Zhonghua and incorporates a complete size of 399.99 metres and a width of 61.5 metres.

It should come outfitted with a hybrid scrubbed desulfurization unit, small bulbous bow, massive diameter propellers and energy-saving ducts.

The ship makes use of the bubble drag discount system which reduces the whole power consumption and the corresponding complete carbon emissions by 3% to 4%.

The shaft generator can be used for the primary time, which may successfully cut back gasoline consumption, optimize EEDI power effectivity indicators and cut back greenhouse fuel emissions, the shipbuilder explains.

The vessel is the primary in a sequence of 4 24,116 TEU containerships ordered by MSC and is scheduled to be accomplished and delivered inside this yr.
