Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding's first twenty thousand TEU container ship

The morning of June 16th, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding COSCO Container Shipping Co. Ltd. to build the first 20000TEU container ship H1413 ship successfully undocked, marking the largest container ship construction record again be refreshed, also means that the Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding which entered the ranks of advanced twenty thousand TEU Container ship construction, creating a new record - the largest container ship the box in Shanghai and the construction of the China. COSCO freight deputy general manager Hou Liping, COSCO Shipping Trade (Hongkong) Deputy General Manager Gao Yongjun, DNVGL classification Southern manager Boris Bondarenko, Chinese CCS Shanghai branch deputy general manager Xu Li, as well as from COSCO cargo, DNVGL classification society, China classification society in the factory group, China Shipbuilding Trading Co and Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Group representative project attended the undocking ceremony. COSCO Container is ordered 11 20000TEU container ships, including 3 ships built by Waigaoqiao shipbuilding. The first ship was successfully built in December 31, 2016, and in March 10th, the peninsula was unable to sit up and float until June, when the 16 calendar was successfully launched 166 days ago. The ship's total length of about 400 meters, 58.6 meters wide, 30.5 meters deep, designed draft 14 meters, the design speed of 22.5 knots, the maximum deck packing 11628TEU, cargo hold maximum packing capacity of 8482TEU, nominal total box 20110TEU. The vessel is equipped with two refrigerated container holds, refrigerated containers 160TEU, plus 840TEU refrigerated containers on deck, and refrigerated containers 1000TEU. It is reported that, 20000TEU container ship by the China State Shipbuilding Corporation seventh O eight Institute and Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co design, the use of maritime latest technology and specifications. In the process of R & D, the 4E concept of ship economy, energy efficiency, environment optimization and economic construction is implemented. In view of the ship owner's operation characteristics and cargo loading characteristics, an integrated optimization technique is adopted to obtain the shape of an energy-saving ship adapted to multi speed conditions and multi draught conditions, and to meet the flexible loading of different goods. The ship uses an efficient host and propulsion device to achieve excellent energy efficiency and emission control to meet the EEDI third stage target requirements. For the first time in China, GASREADY design technology is applied to super large container ships to meet the needs of the future dual fuel modification at the minimum cost, so as to meet the more stringent emission requirements in the future. In recent years, "BiggerisBetter" has become the consensus of the global container shipping market. The smooth unloading of the first 20000TEU ship indicates that Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding has entered the advanced ranks of the world shipbuilding industry in the construction capacity and management level of the super large container ships. Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding in the international super large container ship construction club in just a few years time firmly stand firm, quickly enrich and expand the brand's large and super large container ship product line. At present, more than 20000 container class super large container ship innovation special project has been listed as a major national innovation projects. With the series box ship built successfully, Chinese in ultra large container ship design and construction in the field, will be gradually realized by the technology innovation leader follower to change and become a real world shipbuilding power.
