Evergreen is supersizing its series of so-called L-class boxships. According to Alphaliner, the Taiwanese carrier currently operates a fleet of 30 such vessels, and it remains unclear how many will be enlarged.
According to Alphaliner, the upgraded ships will have a capacity of 9,466 teu, compared to an original intake of 8,452 teu. Most of the increase will come from raising the vessels’ deck houses.
The first jumboized ship, Ever Laden, arrived on the US East Coast this week, while a sister ship, Ever Lenient, is currently being upgraded at China’s Huarun Dadong Dockyard.
