Barzan Puts Zeebrugge to the Test

Belgian Port of Zeebrugge welcomed the 18,800 TEU Barzan, the container shipping industry’s first LNG-ready ultra-large container vessel, and the largest boxship in United Arab Shipping Company’s (UASC) fleet, at the APMT Terminal on July 3.

Barzan has an overall length of 400 metres, breadth of 58.68 metres, depth of 30.6 metres and a draught of 16 metres.

Preliminary calculations indicate that Barzan has an EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) value that is close to 50% below the 2025 limit set by IMO.

It also has a CO2 output per TEU that is more than 60% below a 13,500 TEU vessels delivered just three years ago.

”We understand that providing environmentally friendly transport solutions and recognizing environmental initiatives around the globe are no longer a choice; they are a necessity for both our organization and our customers,” said Jørn Hinge, President and Chief Executive Officer of UASC.

”We are increasingly servicing environmentally aware customers across the globe. We push the boundaries of eco-efficiency standards to ultimately ensure that our customers can achieve higher levels of environmental sustainability.”

This year, UASC will receive a total of 10 new vessels.
