HULL 4135 from South Korea's Daewoo shipyards will soon be named as the MSC Danit, a 14,000-TEU vessel, only weeks after the 14,000-MSC Daniella came down the slipways of the Samsung Heavy Industry yards, according to Alphaliner News.
While the recently launched MSC Daniela was built by a different shipyard, they are both 365.5 metres long and 51.2 metres abeam, or 20 rows wide, said the Paris-based agency.
The MSC Danit's superstructure is set forward, aft of eight container bays while its engine room and funnel are conventionally located one third aft, said the report.
Until mid-2010, Daewoo will build five 14,000 TEU ships for MSC as well as deliver similar ships to Hamburg's Claus-Peter Offen, believed to be for charter with the Geneva-based MSC, said the agency.
When delivered in late February, the MSC Danit will most likely join her owners' Far East-Med Jade service, about to be upgraded from the 8,000-9,000 TEU to the 11,600-14,000 TEU class of vessels.
