Built by the China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) for the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), every feature of the MSC Tessa container ship is impressive: deck area is almost four football fields, where 24,116 containers will be placed in stacks of 26 m at a height of 24,116 containers. Vessel dimensions (length, width) – 400 x 61.5 m, carrying capacity – over 240 thousand tons.
O s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s y y y requires the acceptance of ships (as you know, tankers can drain fuel and refuel through special remote terminals, increasing speed in the roadstead).
The creators of the supercontainer made a delivery on efficiency – and, above all, on the innovative “air lubrication” system, which allows to reduce hull resistance and energy consumption. In addition, a technology has been discovered before the study that can reduce emissions (the container ship’s power plant runs on diesel fuel) by almost 5%.
By the end of the summer, MSC will receive three more similar container ships from CSSC, two of which have already passed sea trials. Their construction cost the customer $600 million.
