United Arab Shipping Company says its M.V. Al Muraykh, one of the world’s greenest containerships, has loaded a world record 18,601 TEUs.
UASC says the Ultra-Large Containership (ULCV) departed Port Klang in Malaysia this week bound for Felixstowe in the UK as part of AEC1 service carrying the 18,601 TEUs. The vessel will be sailing for two weeks.
“This unprecedented westbound shipment is also UASC’s highest utilization to date of this very eco-efficient class, meaning the CO2 output per TEU on this journey is set to be more than 60% lower if the same containers were shipped on board a 13,500 TEU ship,” UASC said in a press release announcing the record load.
Containers on board were loaded by UASC and its partners in the Ocean Three alliance.
MV Al Muraykh was delivered in August 2015 at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries as part of a newbuild program comprised of eleven 15,000 TEU vessels and six 18,800 TEU LNG-ready vessels.
