World's largest container ship that weighs 210,890 tonnes and spans four football pitches makes its maiden call at UK port.


Cost: £125m, $158.7m


Ordered: March, 2015.


Delivered: May, 2017


Tonnage: 210, 000


Lenght: 400m


Width: 58.8m


Capacity: 21,413(Containers)


Builder: Samsung Heavy Industries, Geoje



Stretching a quarter of a mile and weighing a mighty 210,890 tonnes, the world's largest container ship laden with cars, car parts, machinery, heavy equipments and electrical goods from Asia hauled itself into a British port for the first time as stunned onlookers gasped and took photos of the mega-vessel with their phones.

The 21,413 TEU OOCL Hong Kong, which can carry up to 21,000 20ft containers, arrived after a 17-year absence from British waters at the Hutchinson Port of Felixstowe, Suffolk.

It returned to the UK as part of the Ocean Alliance the largest operational agreement between shipping companies where it will serve the Asia-Europe trade lane from the seaside town.

When we talk about technology, nothing holds a record for a long time.

Dont be surprised that in another 2-3years, another giant will be launched.

Even the EMMA MAERSK LINE the second biggest cargo ship before this one carries over 12thousand containers without any issue.

Besides, failure of life doesn't stop white from achieving their goals unlike black counterpart. Instead, they focus on those challenges and improve there in.

Go and watch the documentary of INDEPENDENT of the SEA Cruise liner which is the biggest passenger ship carrying over 4000 passengers with many luxury on.

The ship can turn in one position and has about three swimming pool at the top with 18storeys tall.
