PIL Orders Eight 11800 TEU Container Ships from Yangzijiang

Singapore-based container line Pacific International Lines (PIL) and China’s shipbuilder Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings) Ltd. have signed a contract for the construction of eight 11,800 TEU container ships in Shanghai on September 16.

These 314.5-meter-long, 48.2-meter-wide newbuildings will have a draft of 13 meters, and will be the largest boxships in PIL’s fleet once the planned deliveries start in 2018.

The parties did not disclose the value of the contract.

This will be the second time Yangzijiang was tasked to built five-digit TEU container ships in its history, following previous deals with Seaspan for 10,000 TEU boxships.

Yangzijiang has delivered thirteen 10,000 TEU container ships to Seaspan so far, with four more still under construction.
