Seaspan, ZIM name two LNG-powered containerships in South Korea

South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has hosted a naming ceremony for two 15,000-teu LNG-powered containerships it built for owner Seaspan and charterer ZIM.

The shipbuilder held the naming ceremony for the LNG-powered vessels, ZIM Mount Everest and ZIM Mount Blanc, at its Geoje yard on Wednesday, according to a social media post by Israel’s ZIM.

These are the second and third out of ten 15,000-teu vessels which will go on charter to ZIM.

The two firms named the first vessel in this batch, ZIM Sammy Ofer, in February this year.

Back in 2021, Seaspan and ZIM signed a charter deal for ten 15,000-teu vessels that will serve the latter’s Asia-US East Coast trade.

These 366 meters long vessels will feature MAN ME-GI engines and GTT’s Mark III membrane technology.

GTT said the tanks will have a capacity 12,000 cbm.

Besides these ten vessels, Seaspan and ZIM also signed charter deals for 15 7,000-teu LNG-powered container vessels.

China’s Jiangsu New Yangzi is building these ships.
