On December 28, Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, won the construction contract for two 24000TEU ultra-large container ships of Bank of Communications Financial Leasing Co., Ltd.
In this project, Hudong-Zhonghua will once again serve as the “road pioneer” and undertake the important task of building the first ship. The 24000TEU ultra-large container ship is currently the world’s largest ship with the largest packing capacity and the largest deadweight tonnage.
The total number of containers reaches 24,100 boxes. It is equipped with a hybrid Scrubber desulfurization device. All 4 ships are independently designed by Hudong Zhonghua. There are 4 ultra-large container ships of 24000TEU this time, 2 of which are each built by Hudong Zhonghua and Jiangnan Shipbuilding under China State Shipbuilding Corporation.
This signing is the concrete implementation of the strategic cooperation agreement signed between China Shipbuilding Corporation and Bank of Communications Co., Ltd. on December 18. This type of ship adopts the world’s latest green, environmentally friendly, high-efficiency, energy-saving, safe, and reliable design scheme. Its unique small bulbous bow, large-diameter propeller and energy-saving ducts make the ship’s fast performance and low energy consumption fully reflected.
The double-tower fixed water cannon fire extinguishing system greatly improves the fire safety performance of the deck surface, showing advanced design concepts and cutting-edge shipbuilding technology. Hudong Zhonghua, as the core shipping company of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, has always firmly implemented the high-quality development strategy.
It is a leader in the field of container ship manufacturing in my country. Its rich design and construction experience has been highly recognized by mainstream global liner companies. At present, Hudong-Zhonghua has delivered more than 50 large container ships with more than 8,000 boxes, including 2 world’s first 23,000-box LNG dual-fuel-powered container ships. Hudong-Zhonghua will give full play to the advantages of China State Shipbuilding Corporation’s internal collaboration, and work hand in hand with Jiangnan Shipbuilding and China Shipbuilding Trading to ensure the high-quality construction and on-time delivery of 24,000TEU ultra-large container ships.
