Samsung sets containership record

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has set a new world record for world’s biggest containership with Mitsui O.S.K. Lines’ (MOL) Triumph.
The 400m-long vessel is 58.8 metres wide, and has a depth of 32.8 metres. The Ultra Large Container Ship (ULCS) can transport 20,150 containers.
Three other 20,150 TEU containerships are due to join Triumph at MOL, Port Technology reports.
Final preparations are now being made for Triumph’s maiden voyage, set to take place after the ship’s delivery on 27 March 2017.
A naming ceremony took place for the ship in Geoje shipyard, South Korea, on March 15 2017. The event was attended by representatives from SHI and MOL, including the CEOs of both companies.
Triumph boasts eco-friendly features including energy-saving equipment such as propeller, rudder valve and stator.
SHI expects to deliver 10 more 20,000 TEU containerships in 2017.
