China United Lines (CU Lines) has placed an order at CSSC Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS) for two 7,000 teu containerships.

Designed by SDARI, the boxship pair is in 272.5 metres length and 42.8 metres width, meeting the requirements of EEDI III and Tier III. Equipped with AMP system and scrubber, the two vessels are efficient and environment-friendly. 

It is the first time CU Lines has ordered from Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding. With the signing of the two 7,000 teu containerships, Waigaoqiao has maintained its position as the worlds largest intermediate container shipbuilder, said Waigaoqiao.

With the addition of the two 7,000 teu containerships, the order on hand of the same type of vessel for Waigaoqiao is reaching 30.

Earlier in February, CU Lines ordered two 2,700 teu containerships at CSSCs Huangpu Wenchong Shipyard.
