Hi, Vlad!

Nice shot of new ULCS!
Awaiting for her particulars to know! )


Allan RO on Feb 15, 2016 09:08 (1 year ago)
Yes, Andy you are correct. She is the first for Quantum Scorpio Box, a j/v between Scorpio Gp. and Idal Ofer's Quantum Pacific Group.

But again the thread serves only to confirm that most members on the site simply do not have a sense of humour. May be Vlad should have saved his comments for April 1st.

"Tiny box"? Most bizarre! :) But it's usually like this: there was a guy I knew nicknamed "Conan" - and he was 100 pounds max. soaking wet...

Building for "Tiny Box Shipping Co Ltd", Marshall Islands for MSC and apparently given the notional name TINY BOX. A bit bizarre.

The following two apparently the more reasonable names JUMBO BOX and MEGA BOX, though will presumably be launched wiht MSC names.

Hi Vlad,

I guess everybody was very serious haha, the competition would have loved it...

Now everybody seems to go for enclosed bridges, it's a pity, les feeling with the elements and creating even more people with their heads in the radar and ecdis screens.

Brett Bachmann on Feb 14, 2016 18:44 (1 year ago)
I thought you were on something...too many fumes ??? with yr explanation Vlad ;)Brett hehe
lappino on Feb 14, 2016 17:54 (1 year ago)
Come on, guys, you know I was joking! (That's why I even put the ":)" and followed by with the "normal" explanation.)
Anyway, I didn't know that she will be in the water already - looks like they are running in parallel with DSME...

Do not hang your head over the rails:
Funnel exhausts emitted directly into the water = water pollution instead of air pollution.

Great shot as always, guess she is the first 19,200 for Scorpio from SHI.
I would love to be there now seeing these new MSC's at SHI & DSME. As usual they just seem to appear from no where, wasnt so long ago it was the new CMA's fitting out.

I like the enclosed bridges of both the new DSME & SHI designs.

MO Roy on Feb 14, 2016 14:14 (1 year ago)
Hi Vlad,

Many thanks for the MSC ships pictures, great to see.

At least Samsung doesn't try to scare the Aponte family with a 'Maersk-blue' MSC logo.

Thanks for explanation, that will be good to battle the overcapacity.

Please keep us updated.

MattyBoy on Feb 14, 2016 12:28 (1 year ago)
Fascinating stuff! You are a mine of information Vlad. Thanking you for the explanation.
lappino on Feb 14, 2016 12:27 (1 year ago)
This ship has a novel funnel-less arrangement, where exhaust fumes are channeled below the hull from the bottom exhausts, thus creating a super-cavitation effect and reducing water friction by oh pont oh eight percent (the downside being the hull itself lasting no more than 7 months)...


Otherwise, this is how SHI usually launches its vessels, without funnels, which are fitted later.


MattyBoy on Feb 14, 2016 12:17 (1 year ago)
Where are her funnel(s)?
