World’s largest container ship built to ABS class

Taiwanese container line, Evergreen Marine, has recently commissioned what is claimed to be the world’s largest container ship, the 24,004-TEU Ever Alot. The vessel is the latest in a series of 15 A-class ships being built for the company at shipyards in South Korea and China. It is number seven of nine A-class ships being built to ABS class at China’s Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding.

The 400m-long ‘Megamax 24’ Ever Alot has now been deployed on the world’s largest container trade lane between Asia and Europe.

John McDonald, ABS executive vice president and COO, said: “We are proud to support the design, construction and successful delivery of such a remarkable vessel through the challenges of the pandemic. As the leading class in containerships, we have a record of supporting industry firsts and this milestone is the latest we are proud to add to that list.”
