OOCL breaks largest containership record with 21,413-TEU vessel

OOCL Hong Kong

The OOCL Hong Kong, with a length of 1,312 feet and a width of 193 feet, will serve the Asia-Europe trade lane as part of the LL1 service.

Hong Kong-based ocean carrier line OOCL has knocked Maersk from the largest containership top spot after christening the 21,413 TEU OOCL Hong Kong at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard.

Three new ships have broken the record so far in 2017 after the 20,568 TEU Madrid Maersk came on the shipping scene in April to trump the 20,150 TEU MOL Triumph’s title claim the month before.

The last time that OOCL broke the record was back in April 2003 with the OOCL Shenzhen, an 8,063 TEU vessel, also built at the SHI shipyard.
