Naming of LNG Containerships 

The naming ceremony of ZIM MOUNT ELBRUS and ZIM MOUNT VINSON, the final additions to the series of ten 15,000 TEUs advanced LNG vessels, took place at the SHI Geoje shipyard in Korea. These vessels, showcasing state-of-the-art LNG technology, were named traditionally by their respective godmothers, Mrs. Hani Kalinsky, ZIM’s EVP Pacific Business Unit, and Mrs. Joey Chow, Senior Strategic Accounts Manager in ZIM. These new vessels are planned to be deployed on ZIM Container Service Pacific (ZCP), ZIM’s flagship service connecting Asia and the East Coast of the USA. With the addition of these two vessels, the ZCP service will deploy exclusively LNG vessels. ZIM vessels are the first LNG vessels to call ports on the East Coast of the USA.

ZIM PEARL, the fifth vessel in the series of fifteen advanced 7,700 TEUs LNG vessels, was named at the Jiangsu Yangzijiang shipyard in China by godmother Ms. Winnie Wing Han NG, spouse of Seaspan’s President and CEO, Mr. Bing Chen.
