Samsung Heavy Industries is building the biggest cargo ship ever for Mitsui OSK Lines.
The $609 million vessel will be a quarter of a mile long (1,300 feet) with a capacity of 20,150 TEUs. That’s about 5,000 more containers than the current largest ship in the world.
At 193-feet-wide, the MOL megaship will work exclusively in the Pacific Ocean, since it won’t be able to fit through the Panama Canal.
The company touts the ship as eco-friendly due to several energy-saving features inside the vessel,
which, if true, is a pretty good accomplishment for something so massive.
The ship is scheduled for delivery in 2017.
