MSC GulenGENEVA: August 19, 2019. The 23,000+ TEU MSC Gülsün, the world’s largest container ship, has arrived in Bremerhaven, Germany from Algeciras, Spain after completing its maiden voyage from the north of China that began on July 08.

Gülsün is the first of 11 similar vessels to be added in to the global shipping network of the Mediterranean Shipping Company in 2019/2020. South Korean shipbuilders SHI will deliver six and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering the other five.

At some 400 metres long and more than 60 metres wide, the ship’s capacity is the equivalent of 1,358 B747 freighters, over 14,000 heavy trucks and 44 trains each 8,000 ft. long.

The vessel is on track to meet international 2030 environmental policy targets set by the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO) ahead of time, building on a 13 percent improvement in CO2 emissions per ton of cargo moved already achieved across the MSC fleet between 2015 and 2018.

To comply with an upcoming marine fuel regulation in 2020, the ship is also equipped with a UN IMO-approved hybrid Exhaust Gas Cleaning System and has the option of switching to low-sulphur fuel, or to be adapted for LNG in the future.
