Tsuneishi Shipbuilding has delivered its first containership newbuilding from its yard in the Cebu, the Philippines.


Until now Tsuneishi Heavy Industries (Cebu) has built bulk carriers and with the yard starting to build containerships executives were sent to Tsuneishi Group (Zhoushan) Shipbuilding to learn from the Chinese shipyard.
The Philippines yard’s first container vessel, a 1,944 teu Bangkok Max sized ship was delivered on 10 September.

The Bangkok Max is the largest size of vessel that can call the port of Bangkok, and the Tsuneishi design is larger than the standard 1,800 teu capacity.

The vessel is fitted with a scrubber to meet the requirements of IMO 2020.
