The MOL Triumph, one of the world’s biggest ships, docked at the port of Hamburg on Monday marking the arrival of the first 20,000 TEU ‘megaship’ in northern Europe.
The 20,170 TEU MOL Triumph, measuring 400m in length and almost 59m wide, was the first ship to break the 20,000 TEU mark when she was delivered by Samsung Heavy Industries back in March.
The MOL Triumph is deployed on the THE Alliance’s FE2 service, linking China and Southeast Asia with Northern Europe. The port of Hamburg marks MOL Triumph’s first stop in northern Europe and the final stop of the FE2 service’s westbound leg. Eastbound leg will include stops at Rotterdam, La Havre (France), Tangier (Morocco), Jebel Ali, Hong Kong and Qingdao (China).
