1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: CSCL / COSCON 22,000 teu ships on: April 18, 2017, 09:52:58 pm
Back in around 2008, STX Shipyards gained a considerable flush of publicity when they announced what they said was a fully developed plan for a 460 metre 22,000 TEU container ship, 60m beam.

They didn't find a customer to build the ship for, however, and bearing mind traffic difficulties, it might not have been a bad thing that it didn't happen!

Ro-ro Ferries like Britannia Seaways are designed to carry out all their manoeuvres under their own power, using their powerful bowthrusters and twin engines, and Becker rudders to control propeller thrust.

But on some rare occasions, the master might need to engage tugs to help the ship with close quarters control - and this morning, February 23rd, with Storm Doris coming in, was one of those.
