19,100-TEU CSCL Globe, world's biggest, named at HHI yard

CSCL GLOBE, the world’s largest containership and the first of a series of five 19,100-TEU vessels ordered by China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) in 2013, has been named at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in Ulsan, South Korea. 

CSCL Globe measures 400 metres in length, 58.6 metres abeam and 30.5 metres in depth, and will be deployed on the Asia-Europe route.

Said class society DNV GL regional manager Tommy Bjørnsen: "I would like to congratulate both CSCL and Hyundai Heavy Industries on achieving this breakthrough in ultra-large containership development."

The vessel and its upcoming sister ships have also implemented the RSCS class notation (Route Specific Container Stowage). The RSCS notation was developed by DNV GL to provide an even more efficient usage of cargo capacity with more flexibility and more laden containers on board on specific routes without compromising on safety.
