It was reported in Lloyds List this morning that A NEW world record is about to be set by MSC Oscar, Mediterranean Shipping Cos latest vessel, whose nominal capacity of 19,224 teu makes it the largest containership afloat

I'm sure they are assembling them underwater, then put on that dock & it brings the whole thing to the surface so they can finally add some finishing touches.

Super shot Vlad,

This one just crept up on us! how do DSME do it!
Can confirm this is the first in a series of 6 x 18000teu units all for del 2015, Hull nos 4277,4278,4279 owned by HK Asset Management and hull nos 4280,4281,4282 through Minsheng Financial.
The superstructure is indeed alot nicer looking the CSCL Globe.

Thanks, Frank.

This MSC vessel has gone completely undetected (by me) so far. 3 weeks ago I did not see anything going on at DSME that would resemble this vessel - and now she is already in the water!

Good to have Shipspotting back. Another Triple E in the bachround. Not very often that you see an empty building dock in your photos. keep up the great work.

Vlad and Allan, thanks for the info!

lappino on Oct 11, 2014 15:45 (5 years ago)
Yes, Allan, I see it now...thanks for the info!

Hi Vlad

Nice shot of another biggy.....lists also show Daewoo 4281 (IMO 9708681 and 4282 (IMO 9708693) - so I guess 6 in the series.

lappino on Oct 11, 2014 14:23 (5 years ago)
Thanks, Ruslan.

I only know the hull numbers, DSME 4277 to 4280, and dimensions which will be very similar to those of Maersk Triple E...
So, 18.400 TEU, 395.4x59x16 m, 23 container rows across, 5+10+9 bays aft to fwd.

Hi, Vlad!
Thanks for posting your good shot from the front line! Very "news-full" photo! Any info about the series of these ships?

lappino on Oct 11, 2014 10:57 (5 years ago)
Thanks, Herbert!

I like her superstructure too - looks so much better than CSCL Globe's...

Thanks for posting Vlad.

You can consider youself lucky to be in the font row all the time!

Nice superstructure, by the way. Strong memories of the MSC Danit series from "yesteryears"...

Keep up the excellent work!
