STX PONDERS 20,000 TEU BOXSHIP

SOUTH Korea's STX Shipbuilding says it has designed a 22,000 TEU containership, which would 450 metres, 50 metres longer than the current biggest box ships ? the 11,000 TEU Emma Maersk class.

STX says in a statement: "The 22,000 TEU marks a breakthrough in the sense that the 20,000 TEU was once considered as the limit of a container ship can get in terms of its transport capacity both in terms of technology and economy."

The driving force toward larger container ships is rising fuel prices and the proposed design could cut ocean transport costs per container by 40%.
