Order for 13 vessels signed up

A report from shipbrokers Braemar ACM said MSC signed up for 13 vessels at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co (DSIC) and Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) with a price tag of $120m each.

Single largest containership order

The deal, described as the single largest containership order accepted by state-run CSSC, will see the company’s subsidiaries DSIC and GSI build seven and six scrubber-fitted vessels respectively.

The 366 m long vessels, designed by CSSC 708 Institute, will be LNG-ready.

The successful acquisition of this order has allowed the Chinese-made independent brand to make another brilliant appearance in the international market,” CSSC said.

Future projects

CSSC has also recently been confirmed as Seaspan’s shipbuilder of choice for six 15,500 teu scrubber-fitted box ships, scheduled to start delivering in the second half of 2023.

MSC company has the second-largest containership orderbook in the world after Taiwan’s Evergreen.
