New Large Containership


New Large Containership

With a capacity for 7,500 containers, "Hamburg Express" the new flagship of the Hapag-Lloyd fleet is one of the largest containerships in the world. The ship is 320 metres long, 43 metres wide and with a capacity of 100,000t can carry 7,500 standard containers (TEU). A maximum of 17 containers can be stacked next to one another on deck and 16 layers on top of one another, including seven on deck.

The main engine, which is the size of a house, has an output of 68,640 kW or over 93,000 hp, providing a speed of over 25 knots (over 50 km/h).

The propeller, with its diameter of 9.1 metres and weight of 100 tonnes, is currently the world's largest driving a containership. The "Hamburg Express" was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan, South Korea. Construction began on February 14th this year when the lasers began to cut the first steel plates - up to 78 millimetres thick. Computer-controlled systems were used to ensure the precision engineering of the sections making up the vessel. A total of 300 sections were fitted, some weighing up to 800 tonnes. These fully outfitted modules only needed to be welded together in the construction dock.
