Video: MSC Zoe Arrives in Hamburg
Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) christened its third ‘Oscar Class,’ 19,224 TEU container ship – MSC Zoe – at the Port of Hamburg on August 1.
MSC Zoe is the third of a total of twenty mega-vessels which are scheduled for delivery by the end of the year.
MSC took delivery of its second 19,224 TEU container ship – MSC Oliver – in March, two months after its record breaking sister ship MSC Oscar was inaugurated at the DSME shipyard in Busan, South Korea.
The ships are built to exacting engineering standards at Daewoo’s Shipbuilding and Maritime Engineering (DSME) Shipyard in South Korea and sail under the Panama flag.
”We are delighted to present MSC Zoe to Germany on her maiden call in Hamburg,” said Dittmar Vösterling, Managing Director of MSC Germany GmbH.
”Her arrival opens the way for even stronger ties between MSC and Hamburg. Today, in addition to our container business MSC also offer a range of dedicated intermodal services to customers connecting Hamburg to major business centres throughout Germany.”
