Samsung Heavy Industries, Ltd. (SHI) broke the record for building the largest container ship surpassing 20,000 TEU.
SHI held a naming ceremony for the first of four 20,150 TEU containerships, ordered from Japan's MOL in February 2015, in Geoje shipyard on March 15.
The eventful ceremony gathered 90 from both SHI and MOL, including SHI CEO Dae-Young Park and MOL CEO Junichiro Ikeda, to witness the naming of 'MOL Triumph.'
MOL Triumph, with a length of 400m, breadth 58.8m, depth 32.8m, is an ultra-containership that can transport 20,150 containers.
The eco-friendly ship boasts an array of energy-saving types of equipment designed by SHI including propeller, rudder valve, and stator.

SHI has been leading the market with operation-optimized hull design and record-breaking container ship size. SHI is well known for world-class employees and class-leading R&D infrastructure including the world's largest commercial towing tank in Daeduk R&D center.
Successful construction of the MOL Triumph is yet another proof of SHI's technological excellence. MOL has hailed SHI's performance for zero incident construction for 15 months since steel cutting in January 2016.
MOL Triumph will be delivered to MOL on March 27th after finishing preparation for the maiden voyage.

Wow!
Dat worden vast prachtige reisjes op die boten!
Van staphaven naar staphaven, deadslow stomend langs smalle, kronkelende riviertjes, waar de krokodillen in je anker blijven hangen en er kleine bootjes met houtsnijwerk met je meevaren waarop ze je voor die beeldjes slechts de allerbeste vriendenprijs vragen.
Waar je wekenlang ligt te laden of te lossen en er massa's zwarte, naar zweet en muskus geurende bootwerkers op hun blote voeten krioelen over de tussendekken.
Met de gangway eindigend in het terras van die leuke havenkroeg, waar beeldschone schepsels op je schoot springen en je de pina-colada's met monopolygeld kunt afrekenen.
Waar je je katje kunt spekken met de verkoop van smokkeldrank en sigaretten.
Waar je verkering krijgt met de meest exotische dames, die nadien de eerste stuurman overuren laten draaien om je plasmachientje weer aan de praat te krijgen.
Dames die je beloven om je straks in Holanda te komen opzoeken en dat vervolgens jaren later nog doen ook. . .

Mama, ik wil naar zee!!! :twisted:

MOL's first 20,170 TEU containership will commence its maiden voyage

TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) yesterday announced that the world's largest containership, MOL Triumph was delivered from Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. on March 27, 2017.
MOL's newest vessel, the first of a fleet of six 20,000 TEU-class containerships for the company, was named MOL Triumph in a ceremony at SHI in South Korea on March 15, 2017. At 400 meters in length and 58.8 meters in width, MOL Triumph is currently the world's largest containership. With a capacity of 20,170 TEU, the vessel is the first 20,000 TEU-class containership deployed in THE Alliance's Asia to Europe trade via the FE2 service.

MOL Triumph will set off on her maiden voyage from Xingang in April 2017 and will sail to Dalian, Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Hong Kong, Yantian and Singapore. She will then transit through the Suez Canal and continue on to Tangier, Southampton, Hamburg, Rotterdam and Le Havre. She will then call at Tangier and Jebel Ali on the way back to Asia.

In line with the eco-sailing initiative of MOL, the new 20,000 TEU-class containerships are equipped with various highly advanced energy-saving technologies including low friction underwater paint, high efficiency propeller and rudder, Savor Stator as a stream fin on the hull body, and an optimized fine hull form which together can further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions per container moved by about 25-30% when compared to 14,000 TEU-class containerships. Additionally, the vessel has also been designed with the retrofit option to convert to LNG-fueled ship in view of the implementation of the International Maritime Organization's new regulation to limit SOx emission in marine fuels which will come into effect in 2020.

MOL will take the delivery of the second 20,000 TEU-class vessel in May 2017. Eventually, there will be six of the 20,000 TEU-class containerships unveiled and they will be phased in gradually on the existing trade routes of MOL.

Vessel Particulars of MOL Triumph:
Length 400m
Breadth 58.8m
Depth 32.8m
Deadweight Tonnage 192,672MT

Maersk Line takes delivery of 20,568 TEU boxship Madrid Maersk from DSME

Danish container shipping major Maersk Line has taken delivery of Madrid Maersk, a 20,568 TEU boxship, from South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).
The ultra large container vessel (ULCV) has become the largest boxship in the world built so far.

The previous record has been shortly held by the recently delivered MOL Triumph, which has a capacity of 20,150 TEU.
The 196,000 gross-ton Madrid Maersk features a length of 399 meters and a width of 58.6 meters.
Maersk Madrid belongs to the 2nd generation of the company’s Triple-E class of vessels and is the first of 11 ships ordered from DSME back in 2015. Even though the official capacity rating of the ships was set to 19,630 TEU, Maersk Line seems to have modified the design resulting in breaking of the 20,000 TEU mark.

The rest of the fleet is scheduled to join Maersk Line’s fleet between April 2017 and May 2018. They will sail under Danish flag and are intended for the Asia – Europe service, replacing smaller counterparts. In addition, the ships will feature a new hull design and the twin propulsion setup.
The contract is worth USD 1.8 billion.
Maersk Madrid is expected to enter into service in late-April.

Port of Rotterdam expects the arrival of world’s largest container ship

Following the arrival of the MOL Triumph (20,170 TEU) on 19 May and the Madrid Maersk (20,568 TEU) on the morning of Monday 12 June, the OOCL Hong Kong is expected to arrive in Rotterdam on the afternoon of Friday 23 June. At 21,413 TEU, it is the world’s largest container ship. It will also call in at the European ports of Felixstowe, Gdansk and Wilhelmshaven. Its arrival will mark the climax of a month of increasingly large container ships in Rotterdam and confirms the importance of the scaling-up of container shipping to the Port of Rotterdam.

Just over two years ago, the MSC Oscar headed the list of the largest container ships, but this spring the vessel was relegated from the top three. The arrival of the three ULCCs (ultra-large container carriers) underlines the importance of scaling up in the container handling industry. Emile Hoogsteden - Director of Containers at Breakbulk & Logistics - is delighted with the arrival of the container leviathans: “Rotterdam is the only port in North-western Europe where these huge vessels can moor without any restrictions.”

Maasvlakte 2 at full steam
Hoogsteden is also pleased with the striking growth in the Rotterdam container sector (8.8% by volume (TEU), 10.8% by weight) during the first quarter of 2017. “The growth in container handling is largely down to the fact that Maasvlakte 2 is now truly operating at full steam.” Activity at the new terminals on Maasvlakte 2 is improving all the time, and shipping companies have brought back to Rotterdam substantial quantities of cargo that had been moved elsewhere in late 2015 and early 2016.

Ronald Lughart, Director at Rotterdam World Gateway, one of two fully automated container terminals at Maasvlakte 2, confirmed this last month when the MOL Triumph sailed into port: “The occupancy rate at our fully automated terminal is currently at around 90%.”

Groot, groter, grootst.
Als je alle containers van die OOCL Hong Kong achter elkaar zou zetten wordt dat een trein (zonder tussenruimtes) van 20*0.3048 *21413 = ruim 130 km.
Zet je ze op normale vrachtauto's en hou je die met 10 meter tussenruimte op de weg, dan is dat van de Maasvlakte over de A15 tot een aardig eindje over de Duitse grens.

APM Terminals Tangier celebrates 10 years in Morocco with the Munich Maersk

APM Terminals Tangier welcomed the Munich Maersk, one of the world’s largest container vessels, as it made its maiden call to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the largest and most modern terminal facility in North Africa.

APM Terminals Tangier is one of the most important transfer points of global trade. In addition to handling Moroccan import and export cargo, the terminal manages and transfers cargo for onward destinations in Africa, Latin America and beyond. Tangier's strategic location and state of the art facilities provide easy accessibility to cargo vessels sailing between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.

The Munich Maersk is one of the largest vessels in the Maersk Line fleet, and second in a series of Maersk Line’s improved Triple-E class. With capacity to hold 20,000 containers, the vessel is the largest container ship to call a port in Africa as part of a regular rotation.

“We are delighted to welcome this latest addition to Maersk Line’s fleet in Tangier, just as we celebrate 10th anniversary of our operations. This is yet another confirmation of the strategic importance of APM Terminals Tangier as not only the gateway to Morocco, but as a leading transhipment hub in the region”, says Hicham El Alami, Chief Operating Officer at APM Terminals Tangier.

Since starting operations in July 2007, APM Terminals Tangier volume has grown 72%, to handle more than 1.7 million containers per year. The terminal operates at highest levels of energy efficiency and has reduced its CO2 emissions by 30% since 2009.

To ensure future competitiveness, the terminal recently acquired two super post Panamax cranes, to serve giant vessels like the Munich Maersk. This brings the total number of cranes in operation at the terminal to ten. Investments in elevating more cranes to serve even larger vessels in the future are underway, which will further cement Morocco's place as an important orchestrator of global trade.
“With this maiden call of Munich Maersk to Tangier, we have yet another opportunity to celebrate our good cooperation with the city, the port and APM Terminals,” added Marcos Hansen, Maersk Line’s Managing Director in Western Mediterranean. As the latest addition to our modern fleet, this new vessel continues our commitment to serve our customers in 2/3 Morocco and around the world in an even more efficient, environmentally-friendly and sustainable way.”

With a high focus on operational efficiency and safety, APM Terminals Tangier has a strong track record in providing high quality services to customers and has become an employer of choice in the country.

OOCL Germany named at Samsung Heavy Industry shipyard, Geoje Island

Today, OOCL celebrated the christening of Hull H2173, a 21,413 TEU newbuilding constructed at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard on Geoje Island. Named as OOCL Germany, this mega containership is the second of the six 21 thousand TEU class vessels on order at the shipyard. They are an important part of enhancing the competitiveness and efficiency of Company's modern fleet.

Caption: OOCL Germany christened at a naming ceremony on Geoje Island - Image courtesy of OOCL
As with many of OOCL newbuildings, extra efforts have been made to ensure that they are operationally efficient and meeting the highest environmental standards. In fact, the OOCL Germany, and her sister vessels, are designed with many advanced green features that can help meet future environmental requirements. For instance, the energy efficiency of these containerships not only satisfies the current Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) baseline requirement, but is 48% better than the EEDI level required by the International Maritime Organization in 2025.

“The state-of-the-art technologies in these newbuildings are truly pushing boundaries,” said Mr. Andy Tung, Chief Executive Officer of OOCL, during his commemorative remarks at the naming ceremony. “As a ship owner, meeting environmental requirements are important considerations when working with the shipyard to ensure that we can make the vessel as ‘future proof’ as possible, particularly how we are seeing environmental standards and requirements becoming more and more stringent in the industry over the years.”

“It has been a real privilege for us to be working alongside Samsung Heavy Industries, our long-standing business partner, on this journey – sharing the same commitment to aim high and deliver quality product and services.”

Among our distinguished guests at the ceremony, OOCL was honored by the presence of the Vessel Sponsor, Mrs. Akiyo Moue, and her husband Mr. Nozomi Moue, Managing Executive Officer of Shinsei Bank, as Company's Guest of Honor. In recognition of OOCL's special guests from Shinsei Bank, Mr. Tung thanked Mr. Moue and his colleagues for the business partnership and the Bank’s support to OOCL.

“When we first started discussions with Shinsei Bank about 5 years ago, we were both interested in cultivating our relationship and finding the right opportunity to collaborate on a project together,” said Mr. Tung. “Two years later, our first transaction was made and kick-started our business partnership that later extended to financing support for the OOCL Germany, paving way towards what I strongly believe to be a long-term banking relationship in the making. We are truly honored to have Shinsei Bank in our portfolio and we really look forward to exploring new opportunities that may take our collaboration into the next level.”

The OOCL Germany will be serving the Asia-Europe trade lane on the LL1 service and her port rotation is:
Shanghai / Ningbo / Xiamen / Yantian / Singapore / via Suez Canal / Felixstowe / Rotterdam / Gdansk / Wilhelmshaven / Felixstowe / via Suez Canal / Singapore / Yantian / Shanghai in a 77-day round trip.

“Orient Overseas Container Line” and “OOCL” are trade names for transportation provided separately by: Orient Overseas Container Line Limited (“OOCLL”) and OOCL (Europe) Limited respectively and both are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Orient Overseas (International) Limited, a public company (0316) listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
Headquartered in Hong Kong, OOCL is one of the world's largest integrated international container transportation and logistics companies, with more than 330 offices in 70 countries. Linking Asia, Europe, North America, the Mediterranean, the Indian sub-continent, the Middle East and Australia/New Zealand, the company offers transportation services to all major east/west trading economies of the world. OOCL is one of the leading international carriers serving China, providing a full range of logistics and transportation services throughout the country. It is also an industry leader in the use of information technology and e-commerce to manage the entire cargo process.

CMA CGM gaat over de 22000 TEU's heen.

CMA CGM to build world's largest container ships at Chinese yards-China Daily

Reuters Staff

SHANGHAI, Aug 23 (Reuters) - French shipping group CMA CGM plans to build nine of the world's largest container ships at two Chinese shipyards, the China Daily newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co confirmed that it and its sister yard Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co, had received a letter of intent from CMA CGM for the ships, which would be capable of carrying 22,000 20-foot equivalent unit containers (TEU), the newspaper said.

The final order was subject to board approval from both sides, the newspaper said. Both yards are owned by state-run China State Shipbuilding Corporation.

CMA CGM did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Calls to Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding and Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding outside office hours were not immediately answered.

Should they be built, CMA CGM's 22,000 TEU vessels will leapfrog the OOCL Hong Kong to take the crown of the world's largest container ships. The OOCL Hong Kong has a carrying capacity of 21,413 TEU.

SHI and DSME set to win US$1.5 billion deal for the construction of MSC new containerships

Two South Korean shipbuilders -- Samsung Heavy Industries Co. (SHI) and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. (DSME) -- are expected to win a combined US$1.5 billion deal, industry sources said Wednesday.

According to industry tracker TradeWinds, the Mediterranean Shipping Co. (MSC) is working on an order for up to 11 container vessels.
cyd.jpg
cyd.jpg (109.99 KiB) 1150 keer bekeken
MSC is close to a deal with Samsung Heavy for up to six 22,000-TEU vessels and is expected to turn to Daewoo Shipbuilding for a further five, the report said.

The deals, if clinched, will help local shipyards struggling to win more shipbuilding deals.
Entering this year, local shipyards have bagged more new orders than expected but recently have suffered a setback in securing more contracts.

South Korean shipbuilders have been under severe financial strain since the 2008 global economic crisis, which sent new orders tumbling amid a glut of vessels and tougher competition from Chinese rivals.
The country's top three shipyards suffered a combined operating loss of 8.5 trillion won in 2015. The loss was due largely to increased costs stemming from a delay in the construction of offshore facilities and an industrywide slump, with Daewoo Shipbuilding alone posting a 5.5 trillion-won loss.
In 2016, Hyundai Heavy managed to post profits, but the other two suffered losses.

COSCO Shipping plans $2 billion share sale to build ships.

COSCO Shipping Holdings said on Monday it would raise 12.9 billion yuan ($2 billion) through a share sale to build new ships as it returned to profit for the first nine months of the year.
The Chinese shipping giant reported a profit of 2.7 billion yuan for the nine months to September, after making a loss of 9.2 billion yuan over the same period last year.

Having flagged that it would post a profit earlier this month, it also posted revenues of 67.6 billion yuan as a global recovery in freight rates gathers pace.
COSCO Shipping, which suspended trading in its mainland-listed shares last Thursday, said it would undertake a private placement to fund the building of 20 container ships, six of which will be able to carry over 21,000 twenty-foot containers.

Trading in its shares will resume on Tuesday.
The container shipping industry entered a period of recovery this year after a prolonged slump, which has prompted shipping lines to contemplate new ship orders. In September, France’s CMA CGM said it would order nine giant container ships from Chinese shipyards.

The MOL Truth is the first containership with a capacity of over 20,000 TEU built in Japan, and the fifth in a series of six 20,000 TEU containerships that are operated by MOL. On October 25, the vessel was named MOL Truth. The new containership is 400m long, with a breadth of 58.5m, and has a loading capacity of 20,182 TEU. It will ply the Asia-Northern Europe trade as part of THE Alliance.
The MOL Truth adopts a host of advanced technologies to reduce its environmental impact, such as low-friction hull paint, a high-efficiency propeller and PBCF, a high-efficiency engine plant, and an optimized hull shape. These features will reduce CO2 emissions by 25-30% per container in comparison with MOL-operated 14,000 TEU-class vessels. The ship's design also allows conversion to LNG fuel, in anticipation of stricter standards on vessel exhaust emissions in the future.
