HMM deploying world’s largest container ship

Imagine the Empire State Building laid on its side. The newly christened HMM Algeciras is more than 60 feet longer than the New York City landmark is tall. A walk around the world’s largest container ship would be about half a mile.

A naming ceremony was held Thursday for the HMM Algeciras, which has a capacity of 24,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), at a Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in Geoje, Korea. The Algeciras is scheduled to depart from Qingdao, China, on its maiden voyage Monday.
