24,000-TEU HMM Algeciras biggest afloat to dock at Southampton
Date:2020-08-14 Readers:
THE docking of the 24,000-TEU HMM Algeciras signals the arrival in the UK of the biggest containership built so far, reported London's Riviera Maritime Media.

This is the first of 12 such ships ordered by Hyundai Merchant Marine, split between two South Korean shipbuilders, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), which is building seven while Samsung Heavy Indutries (SHI), builds five.

In April, HMM joined THE Alliance consisting of Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express (ONE) and Yang Ming. The move was timed to coincide with the delivery of the new ships.

HMM Algeciras is currently performing its service on FE3 routes, one of the Asia-North Europe trade lanes of THE Alliance. Port rotation (FE3): Busan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Yantian, (Suez Canal), Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, London Gateway-(Suez Canal), Jebel Ali, Singapore, Yantian, Hong Kong and back to Kaohsiung.

Built at DSME, 400-m HMM Algeciras was the first to steam out. The DSME ships are slightly larger than the Samsung Heavy Industries ships.

The 23,820-TEU HMM Oslo was the first called on Southampton on 20 June. HMM Oslo is 400 metres long and has a capacity of 23,820 TEU. All 12 have been named after European ports. The remaining DSME ships are HMM Copenhagen, HMM Dublin, HMM Gdansk, HMM Hamburg, HMM Helsinki and HMM Le Havre; and SHI ships are HMM Rotterdam, HMM Southampton, HMM Stockholm and HMM St. Petersburg.
