Largest Container Ship ever - OOCL Hong Kong Christened

16 May 2017 - 02:00 - Update: 16 May 2017 - 09:36


The OOCL Hong Kong was christened at Samsung Heavy Industries on Friday. The Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) vessel will be a titan among container ships with a carrying capacity at 21,413 TEU. “While our industry seems to have the knack to ‘out do’ one another in building larger container ships relatively quickly these days, this project is nonetheless an important moment for us,” said C. C. Tung, Chairman of Orient Overseas (International) Limited. “Faced with increasing competition and un-ending pressure on costs, we need to take the bold step in operating larger size ships of quality and high efficiency in order to stay relevant and compete effectively as a major container shipping company.” The last time that OOCL set the world record for the largest container ship was back in April 2003 with the OOCL Shenzhen, an 8,063 TEU vessel, also built by Samsung Heavy Industries.
