Taiwanese shipping giant Evergreen Marine Corporation (EMC) has recently signed an agreement with Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to order eight new container ships with a capacity of 11,000 TEUs.

Green Compass, a subsidiary of Evergreen, will own four of the vessels, while Evergreen in Hong Kong will receive the other four. Delivery is expected to start by the first quarter of 2020 and be completed in 2021. The company states that the emphasis of this new building program is to continue their fleet renewal and meet the projected demand expected over the next few years.

Evergreen will redeploy their older charter vessels as their charter period comes to an end when the new ships arrive, by doing this the company can maintain efficient services within their fleet and increase their competitiveness within the market.

The new ships are 334 meters in length with a width of 48.4 meters, 19 rows of containers can be held on deck. The ships have an operating speed of 23 knots and a scantling draft of 15.5 meters. The ships dimensions allow to pass through the Panama Canal.

A shorter hull compared to the ultra-large container ships makes it easier manoeuvre during departure or berthing with an increased flexibility for fleet deployment. A twin island concept has been used to separate the accommodation block and wheelhouse from the funnel area and engine room. This new design allows for increased visibility for navigation and cargo loading capacity for the permissible container stack height on deck.
