"Triple E" is no longer the world's largest container carrier type, at least when TEU intake is concerned...
This is the first of CSCL's 19.200 TEU (upgraded 18.400 TEU) container ships, as seen shortly after floating out at HHI shipyard in Ulsan.

To economists...)
Sometimes emptу containers are more valuable than loaded ones! Modern container ships have to consider such market problem, as "empty container repositioning". So, even if she can carry 19200 TEU of empties only, she still to be considered as 19200 TEU container ship!

Hi, Vlad!
At last!
Thank you very much for sharing this "long waiting" shot!!!

SHIGEO NAGANO on Aug 26, 2014 21:05 (4 years ago)
Take the deadweight carrying capacity of the vessel
divide by the number of TEU vessel can carry and you have average tonnage per container vessel can uplift to meet her deadweight.
I believe mean average used to be about 14000kgs for Far East loaded containers to Europe or 7000kgs if in a 40

After that will take more space than available here to

Eastbound from Europe to the Far East its a completely different story where scrap and recyclable boxes weighing up to 25000kgs would bring a vessel down to her marks with less than 6000 boxes which has to be tempered with amount of empties that have to be returned to the Far East to meet Westbound commitments

"When it comes to economics it is important how many of these containers can be loaded up to max weight, and how many of them can be reefers..."
That's not really true as weight and revenue are not proportional. And too many reefer sockets may just add to capital/operating costs (OK, though not much).
Forecasting loading characteristics of future box movements is probably one of those clever things that have to be increasingly considered on the demand side to feed in to ship specification, alongside capital/operating costs. Having too many reefer points would have a negative impact on the economics.

If her 19.200 TEUs, making a distance of 117 kms should have been brought by the huge trains crossing the US from coast to coast (I believe), how many of those trains would these 19.200 TEUs need?? I wonder.
Dеnis on Aug 26, 2014 11:46 (4 years ago)
Impressive that she's single-screwed compared to Triple E's... the screw must be of some 9 meters in diameter!
lappino on Aug 26, 2014 11:42 (4 years ago)
I don't have specific knowledge of how many of the nominal intake of containers can be loaded up to max weight, and the dimensions of the initial 18.400 TEU design did not change after the "upgrade", so I think that they have just added a layer of empties as the final layer...
My .02 $.

When it comes to economics it is important how many of these containers can be loaded up to max weight, and how many of them can be reefers, - al compared to triple-E.
Do we have some people here with knowledge to that, - Vlad? :)

If an order currently under discussion goes ahead Allan, 20k TEU will be broken in a couple of years.
Allan RO on Aug 26, 2014 11:16 (4 years ago)
great first view of this new monster of the seas - how long before the 20k barrier is broken.

jan_t on Aug 26, 2014 11:06 (4 years ago)
Great shot, Vlad! However: I wonder how much of the reported 19,200 teu container intake is down marketing boo-haha. As far as dimensions are concerned, the ships are not bigger than Maersk Line's 18,270 teu triple-E-class.
Foldager on Aug 26, 2014 11:02 (4 years ago)
I am so sorry, - but what an ugly Vessel compared to triple-e.
Yes I know only economics Counts, - but the wheelhouse is so tiny!
lappino on Aug 26, 2014 10:54 (4 years ago)
400 m. She has different bay distribution than Triple E. While Triple E has (fwd to aft) 8+10+6 40' bays, CSCL vessel has 9+11+4.


Dеnis on Aug 26, 2014 10:42 (4 years ago)
How long is she overall?
Patalavaca on Aug 26, 2014 10:07 (4 years ago)
19,200 teu's equates to over 72 miles (117 Kms) of boxes, end to end. Good grief!
