1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Fears persist of potential Yang Ming failure on: Yesterday at 03:02:47 pm
Hi Jan,

I understand your point, and indeed most, or all of the info can be found elsewhere on the internet, if you look/search for it.
On the other hand though a lot of, interesting, info is brought under the attention of the Shipspotting community that otherwise would be left unnoticed for them.

So personally I'm not at all annoyed by Johnny posts, he just brings info under the attention without having to search elsewhere on the internet.

Cheers,
Roy

Hi Jeff,

The added structure are anti-rolling tanks. They are this high mounted to have a greater effect.
This to ease the forces on the lashings as these ships with the elevated bridge and higher lashing bridges can now go eleven high stacking on deck.

Roy

Hi Dennis,

The ship you are referring to is one of those ship types that can have obstructive deck-loads so that there would be a big blind-angle for the radar above the bridge.

I'm not sure about class-rules but I guess in such a case it suffices to have only one radar in the foremast.
Maybe members that are working in classification societies can confirm this.

Once again ferries that have a radar on the bow well below bridge level should still have two radars on top of their bridge.

Cheers,
Roy

Hi Rick,

If this is true, than it is done in an old Maersk style fashion. Secretly updating the capacity and only make it public upon delivery. Of course now the Chinese can do it with there Chinese yards.

But then maybe it's only in the mind of this master, because I haven't heart anything about container ships in the pipeline that are bigger then 400 meters.

CSCL has indeed 6 ships on order from Waigaoqiao but they were ordered as "normal" 20000teu vessels i.e. 400 meter long.

I guess we have to wait and see.

Cheers,
Roy

Hi Dennis,

In the past it was quite common for general cargo and multi-purpose ships with lots of derricks/masts and high cranes to have a radar antenna in the foremast.
Nowadays it's not so common anymore besides some special ships.

Regarding radars fwd on ferries, they are only used during docking / undocking. Some big container ships had them also, even some had them on the stern as well. But as they cost extra money it's quite seldom to see them now on big and even bigger containerships.

Magnetic compasses in principle have to stand clear of surrounding metal structures, which is quite difficult in practice. There is of course always metal in the vicinity like a funnel, mainmast etc. Thats why they are being compensated with small iron bars and balls. This is done during sea-trials when the ships turns 360 degrees so it can be compensated for every direction.

Cheers,
Roy

They say they will be 15000teu Ted.
But that will include a lot of "hot air".
From what I understand they will get a rather unusual length to width ratio of 21 40ft bays long and 21 boxes wide, but I haven't seen any plans let alone pictures yet.
Now it's waiting for the first picture here of something light blue from the premises of Hyundai Heavy Industries.

Cheers,
Roy

With thanks to members finn321 and John van Zijderveld on the "Renamings" thread I'm now able to update my original post;

Maersk Edirne    ex Hanjin Asia        9502867, coming into service March 24th in Busan and coming to Europe.
Maersk Enshi     ex Hanjin America  9502946, not known yet
Maersk Eureka   ex Hanjin Sooho     9501239, not known yet

Maersk Elyn apparently didn't materialize and she's also no longer shown in the sailing schedules.

The remaining three go to MSC as follows;
MSC Topaz  ex Hanjin Europe
MSC Ruby   ex Hanjin Gold
MSC Perle   ex Hanjin Earth

Once again thanks to Finn and John.

Cheers,
Roy

Jadran you're more or less right, but that's because the Jones-act US-flagged vessels from Sea-Land were all with a steam turbine, so all those went to CSX. The ones on international trades, non Jones-act, were taken over by Maersk.
Now later on CSX, or actually Horizon, had some motor-ship (Hyundai Mipo built) charter container ships on non Jones Act trades.

Regarding the charters at the time of take-over, most of them were ended soon but Maersk took over some charters, for various amount of time.

Cheers,
Roy

Hi,
Indeed externally she will have the same dimensions as all modern 18.000 to 21.000 teu vessels.
The difference will be the depth (holte), i.e. more containers in the holds, and the amount of layers on deck, ie. ten or eleven high or even twelve high for the new OOCL vessels.
Another factor is the position of the forward deckhouse.
OOCL Hong Kong will have imo number 9776171.
Cheers,
Roy

Just found out that the first of the new 21.000 teu vessels for OOCL built at Samsung will be named OOCL Hong Kong (Clarksons public available date).
Anyone with subsequent names?
Cheers,
Roy

Hi Ted,

For this year the planned delivery's is 1.500.000 teu.
In 2016 934.460 teu was delivered.
