24,000 TEU, World’s Largest Container Ship Delivered to MSC

Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding has delivered the world’s biggest containership, the 24,116-TEU MSC Tessa to the Geneva-based Italian Swiss Mediterranean Shipping Company.

The delivery will further consolidate the leading position of Chinese shipbuilders in the construction of ultra-large container vessels.

The vessel is 399.99 metres in length with a beam of 61.5 metres and is currently the world’s largest containership by capacity, according to Hudong-Zhonghua, a unit of the world’s largest shipbuilder, China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC).

Designed independently by Hudong-Zhonghua, the ship boasts a combination of features, including being environmentally friendly, highly efficient, low in energy consumption, while scoring high on safety.

The three remaining vessels on order by MSC under construction at Hudong-Zhonghua’s shipyards, are set to be delivered individually before August.
