19,100-TEU CSCL Globe, world's biggest, named at HHI yard

Opening Ceremony CSCL Globe in 30 November 2014

CSCL GLOBE, the world's largest containership and the first of a series of five 19,100-TEU vessels ordered by China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL) in 2013, has been named at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in Ulsan, South Korea.

CSCL Globe measures 400 metres in length, 58.6 metres abeam and 30.5 metres in depth, and will be deployed on the Asia-Europe route.

The vessel and its upcoming sister ships have also implemented the RSCS class notation (Route Specific Container Stowage). The RSCS notation was developed by DNV GL to provide an even more efficient usage of cargo capacity with more flexibility and more laden containers on board on specific routes without compromising on safety.
