Over 90% of all goods traded abroad are transported by international shipping. Approximately 50,000 commercial ships are thought to be traveling the oceans at this time, according to the International Chamber of Shipping. Massive intermodal containers are transported on cargo vessels also referred to as container ships (sometimes spelled containerships). Here are some of the biggest container ships in the world:
MSC Gulsun is a property of the Mediterranean Shipping Company. It was one of the first ships in history to transport 24 container rows side by side thanks to its wide 62-meter width. It is 399.9 meters long and can hold 23,756 TEUs. It was built by Samsung Heavy Industries, and Pᴀɴᴀᴍᴀ is where it is registered. Due to its dual-tower fire-ғɪɢʜᴛing system and increased container carrying capacity, it has a lower overall carbon impact.
COSCO Shipping Universe
With a 21,237 TEU capacity, this enormous ship is the largest cargo ship in the C class. Its length is 400 meters, and its width is 58.6 meters. It was established in 2018 by Cʜɪɴᴀ State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and afterwards passed to Cʜɪɴᴀ Ocean Shipping Company Limited (COSCO). The ship can attain a top speed of 22 nautical miles per hour thanks to the ABB Turbochargers that have been installed to improve performance and fuel efficiency.
The Ever ACE, which has a carrying capacity of 23,992 TEUs, is the largest container ship in existence. In July 2021, it set sail for the first time. The gigantic 61.53-meter-wide containers that make up this 400-meter-long monster are arranged in 24 parallel rows. Samsung Heavy Industries, a Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Kᴏʀᴇᴀn company, developed this technological marvel. An 11-cylinder, 2-stroke Wartsila engine serves as the ship’s primary propulsion system. It can produce 70950 kW of electricity and cruises at 22.6 knots.
