Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), the world"s third-largest shipbuilder, has succeeded in constructing a large-size container ship of 14,000 TEU. DSME disclosed on March 31 that its naming ceremony recently took place at its Okpo shipyard in Geojae, Gyeongnam Province and delivered the newly built container ship to the ship-owner MSC.
This container ship is named after CEO Edni Simkin of MSC Israel's daughter "MSC Danit."
"MSC Danit", 365.5 meters in length, 51.2 meters in width, 29.9 meters in height, scales larger than the combined area of three football fields and 116.5 meters longer than the 63 building in Seoul.
The container ship is capable of loading 14,000 standard 20-foot container boxes which account for nearly half of the total amount of cargo that is being traded or moved per day at the port of Busan.
Furthermore, "MSC Danit" can run at a maximum speed of 25 knots an hour, which is equivalent to 46.3 kilometers per hour.
With DSME making its success in building its latest 14,000 TEU container ship, the shipyard is to take an advantage in the super-size container ship market.
