OOCL takes delivery of second 21,413-TEU mega-ship
This week OOCL celebrated the christening of "Hull H2173", a 21,413 TEU newbuilding constructed at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard on Geoje Island.
The mega containership, named as OOCL Germany, is the second of the six 21 thousand TEU class vessels on order at the shipyard.
The Germany, and her sister vessels, are designed with many advanced green features that can help meet future environmental requirements. For instance, the energy efficiency of these containerships not only satisfies the current Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) baseline requirement, but is 48% better than the EEDI level required by the International Maritime Organization in 2025.
