China building 18,000 teu class ships

Shanghai: Anything Korean builders can do, Chinese shipyards will follow. CSSC Shipping, the Hong Kong owning arm of the southern state Chinese yard conglomerate, has changed its order at Jiangnan Changxing Heavy Industry from a series of three 16,000 teu ships to make them 18,000 teu in size, the same as the largest boxships being built across the Yellow Sea in Korea.
The ships, originally ordered in August, will go on charter to CMA CGM when they start to deliver in mid-2015.
Jiangnan Changxing Heavy Industry belongs to Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding which is part of the CSSC empire.  [12/12/13]
