Tsuneishi Group (Zhoushan) Shipbuilding has secured orders for three 1,091TEU Type Container Carriers from Chinese State-owned Company

January 12, 2021

In December 2020, Tsuneishi Group (Zhoushan) Shipbuilding, Inc. (Address: Retiao Village, Xiushan Island, Daishan County, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, China; President: Jiro Sato; hereinafter referred to as TZS) has secured the orders for three 1,091TEU Type Container Carriers from Taicang Container Lines Co., LTD, the subsidiary of the State-owned Jiangsu Port Group.

Prior to the above-mentioned, TZS has also delivered successfully four 1,020TEU Type Container Carriers, the previous model, to Shanghai Haihua Shipping Co. LTD, the subsidiary of another State-owned Shanghai International Port (Group) Co., LTD. The ships were highly evaluated for their navigational performance in actual sea conditions.

The new TSUNEISHI’s 1,091TEU Type Container Carrier is the optimum design for the intra-Japan/China trade. By incorporating the unique technologies such as the hull form that reduces resistance, and the energy-saving MT-FAST device, the ship’s fuel efficiency has been greatly improved compared to the 1,020TEU Type Container Carrier. It has also met the EEDI Phase 3 requirements. Along with the optimized ballast water treatment system, the ship is equipped with double fuel tanks in case of marine accidents, and measures have been taken to prevent oil spills and other marine pollution. In addition, the arrangement of cargo holds and outfitting has been devised to maximize the container loading by 71TEU (20FT equivalent) compared to the 1,020TEU Type Container Carrier. This makes it the largest class of Container Carrier with a gross tonnage of less than 10,000.

TZS has received orders for a cumulative roundup 40 Container Carriers (including the 2,800TEU Type) since 2013, which has made TZS wealth of experience and advanced technological capabilities in the construction of not only bulk carriers but also container carriers.

TZS will continue to make efforts to provide customers with excellent ships that are both economical and environmentally friendly.
