Ultra Large Containerships  

Technology for higher safety and improved performance

Feb. 15 2019

Seaborne container trade has grown dramatically in the last 25 years. Tonnage afloat has increased by a factor of eight, from 30.7 million deadweight metric tons (DWT) in January 1992, to 245.6 million DWT by the beginning of 2017.
Today, more than ever, world trade is utterly reliant on Containerships.


Ultra Large Containerships Technology Report reviews the work that Bureau Veritas has carried out recently to provide better containership rules. It provides insight into understanding what is required to use LNG as fuel – one of the options to meet the environmental challenges of today and tomorrow - and what needs to be considered to carry out gas bunker operations on large boxships. Underpinning everything, it introduces some of the work that forms our understanding of the structural strength of large containerships.
