According to the shipbuilder, the project further expands the scope of COSCO Dalian’s shipbuilding products, and enhances its share in the domestic high-end and specialist shipbuilding market.

The vessel will measure 173 metres in length, 40 metres in breadth, 12 metres in depth, and have a deadweight of 21,000 tonnes.

It is designed for the transportation of ultra large and heavy modular cargos.

The vessel will be equipped with a dual engine/prop electric propulsion system, and a highly automated integrated control system.

With an Ice Class 1AS notation, it will be able to sail in the Arctic and other polar regions.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the second part of 2015.
