Taiwanese liner operator Evergreen Marine has taken delivery of the 23,992 TEU containership Ever Act built by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).
Earlier, the Taiwanese shipping line signed an agreement to build and deliver a series of mega large container carriers. Ever Act will be the second vessel after Ever Ace to enter the company's fleet. A-class megamax containership will be delivered of from SHI in 2021 and 2022.
The A-class vessel is 400 meters in length and 61.5 meters wide, has a design draft of 14.5 meters and can cruise at speeds up to 22.6 knots thanks to an 11-cylinder WinGD diesel engine of the XD92B model. With a nominal carrying capacity of 23,992 TEU, Ever ACE is one of the largest container ships in the world and beats HMM Algeciras (built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering), by just 28 TEU.
EVER ACE passes along the route from the Far East to Europe, calls at the ports of Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Taipei, Yantian, Rotterdam, Felixstowe, and Hamburg. On September 12, the "EVER ACE" arrived in Felixstowe (United Kingdom) and offloaded about 7,000 TEUs there.
We are in a hurry to announce that the latest new vessel, Ever Act, was recently transferred from Samsung's shipyard in Geoje, South Korea, to Qingdao, China, where on September 12 it joined the Ocean Alliance's NEU6 service in the Far East - Northern Europe (which Evergreen calls CEM).
