The largest container ship in the world can carry


China is making the move of the moment worldwide with the largest container ship in the world, which was delivered on Wednesday to Shanghai.

The ship was designed by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) and is called “Ever Alot”. It has a capacity of 24,000 TEU, ie it can allow the simultaneous transport of 24,000 standard containers.

In the context of manufacturing, the ship is 399.99 meters long and is over 60 meters longer than the largest aircraft carrier in the world. The ship is another 61.5 meters wide, while only the deck has a total area of ​​24,000 square meters, the equivalent of 3.5 football fields.

In addition, the ship “Ever Alot” arrived in Shanghai and has a cargo compartment that has a depth of 33.2 meters. In the context of transport capacity, the Chinese ship can carry 240,000 tons of cargo simultaneously. At the same time, the containers can be stacked at a maximum height equal to the 22-storey building, given the generous space.

Thus, China is going to put the ship into operation on several routes that will reach Europe, but this is not the only move made by China this year. Last month, the Chinese launched the world’s first intelligent fish farming vessel.

This ship is named “Conson No. 1” and cost 450 million yuan, or about $ 67.27 million. Specifically, it has a capacity of 100,000 metric tons and was put into operation in Qingdao, China’s Shandong Province.

At the same time, the ship has a length of 249.9 meters and a displacement of 130,000 tons. It also has 15 aquaculture tanks of about 90,000 cubic meters for state-of-the-art commercial fish, such as large yellow croakers, and it is estimated that it will produce 3,700 tons of high quality fish annually from yellow croaker species.

In China’s future plans, last month, Qingdao Conson announced that it was already preparing to build two more 100,000-ton ships and is also studying the construction of a 300,000-ton ship.

From the information so far, in the next ten years, Qingdao Conson will invest in the construction of 50 smart fishing vessels.
