World's Largest Container Vessels

China Shipping Container Line will operate the world's largest containerships following a deal with Canada's Seaspan Container Lines and South Korea's Samsung Heavy Industries. The carrier has agreed to charter five 8,100 TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) box ships that Seaspan has ordered from Samsung Heavy Industries at a cost of US$80 million (HK$624 million) each. It is the first time vessels larger than 8,000 TEUs have been ordered.

The largest containerships currently being fabricated are a series of eight 7,700 TEUs ordered by the Tung family-controlled Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL). The first two - OOCL Shenzhen and OOCL Long Beach - are due to join the OOCL fleet next spring. Danish shipping line Maersk Sealand has proposed larger containerships but never revealed the exact size. Korean and Japanese shipbuilders also have conceptual plans for larger vessels of 10,000 TEUs, but the yards have yet to win firm orders for the leviathans. China Shipping will take delivery of the vessels, which will be 334 metres long and almost 43 metres wide, in 2005. The ships will be capable of almost 26 knots, making them faster than their smaller rivals. China Shipping worked with Seaspan, Samsung and French containerline CMA CGM on the development of a series of 9,000 TEU ships in 2000, but the plan was abandoned following the collapse of the container shipping business.
