A colossal 20,000 TEU containership, owned by COSCO Shipping Lines, was named today at Dalian Cosco Kawasaki Shipbuilding (DACKS).

Named COSCO Shipping Pisces, the vessel is the second 20,000 TEU boxship to be delivered by the yard to the liner company. The LNG-ready vessel spans 400 meters in length, a width of 58.6 meters, and has a design speed of 22.5 knots/hour.

The Lloyd’s Register-classed ship is one of the largest container ships built and delivered in China.

According to COSCO Shipping, the containership boasts numerous environmentally-friendly features including shore-power system, ballast water management systems and low fuel and energy consumption.

Furthermore, the ship is equipped with intelligent energy efficiency management system aimed at monitoring and management of consumption of fuel, energy, and ship speed optimization. The system allows for one-man bridge operation, securing COSCO Shipping Pisces a spot in the new generation of “smart ships”.

After the delivery, COSCO Shipping Pisces will be deployed to the Constellation Express route of COSCO Shipping, providing service between Europe and Asia, AEU7 Eastbound. It is part of COSCO Shipping’s Constellation series of vessels, all named after the 12 constellations in the zodiac family.
