Taiwan: CSBC Delivers New Containership to Wan Hai Lines

 

In order to expand its fleet capacity, Wan Hai Lines Ltd, a Taiwan-based container shipping company, took delivery of a new 1,805 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessel from ship builder CSBC Corp., Taiwan.

The new boat, named Wan Hai 272, is equipped with an advanced global positioning system for navigation to improve safety, while being installed with energy efficient equipment to lower pollution and meet global environmental protection requirements, the company said.

Delivery of another 1,805 TEU boat from CSBC is scheduled for January.

As contracted with CSBC, Wan Hai Lines commissioned the building of 14 ships, and delivery of the remaining vessels will be taken over the next two years.

They include one 1,805 TEU boat, four 1,000 TEU ships and six 4,500 TEU vessels. TEUs are the measurement of capacity of a container vessel.

The shipping firm is currently operating a fleet of 80 vessels, 62 of which are self-owned and the remaining 18 are rented.
