Next Gen 19,224-TEU MSC Maya soon to join Asia-Europe loop

THE fourth 19,000-TEU ship destined for Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) service, the 19,224-TEU MSC Maya has been delivered from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in Korea. 

The vessel is part of a newbuilding programme comprising so far 20 units of this size, ordered at DSME (12 ships), Samsung HI (six units) and Hyundai HI (two units) in several steps from July 2013 to March 2015, reports Alphaliner.

The MSC Maya follows the MSC Oliver, MSC Oscar and MSC Zoe. Six of the 12 DSME units were contracted by Bank of Communications Leasing (BoCom), while six others, including the MSC Maya, were contracted by Minsheng Financial Leasing (MSFL). 

These 12 ships are on long-term leases to MSC, which also acts as vessel manager, said Alphaliner.

Although advertised with a nominal capacity of 19,224 TEU, the vessels' usable intake will stand at around 18,000 TEU as deadweight limitations kick in on headhaul legs. 

With a length of 395.4 metres and a breadth of 58.6 metres, there are 23 rows of containers across the deck, giving the ship dimensions in line with other of this next-generation type. 

The new ship is propelled by a fully electronically-controlled low speed engine designed by MAN-B&W (model S90ME-C10 in 11 cylinder version), offers nominal power of 67,100 kW.

The MSC Maya is expected to join the Maersk-MSC Far East-Europe AE-2/Swan loop, offered within the context of the 2M vessel sharing agreement.

Entering service the new ship will replace the 15,500-TEU Ebba Maersk that will be shifted to the AE-1/Shogun loop.
