Shanghai-based Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) built and delivered the largest container vessel in the world to Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC).

MSC Tessa has a container capacity of 24,116 TEUs and is the first of four same-size container ships purchased by the largest container line in the world.

According to Hudong-Zhonghua, a unit of China State Shipbuilding Corp (CSSC), the vessel is currently the world’s largest boxship in terms of TEU capacity.

The mega container vessel measures 399.99 metres in length and 61.5 metres in width.

Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group reported that the second vessel on order from the series has completed sea trials and that the other two sister vessels are also under construction. All the remaining boxships are expected to be delivered before August 2023.

other goods loaded upon the same vessels have also been tested, properly certified and handled correctly, to minimise potential risks to our own cargo. We believe this is a milestone for the industry and will quickly gain wider adoption,” said Yoyo Ju, Lead of Order Fulfillment Center - Doc Management at Midea.
