Chinese shipbuilder Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding has delivered Evergreen’s giant 24,000 TEU containership Ever Acme four months ahead of schedule, the shipbuilder said.
The vessel was built at the yard’s Changxing Shipbuilding unit and it was earmarked for delivery in the second quarter of 2023.
The shipbuilder said that faster delivery was enabled by management innovation and improvement of the shipbuilding process as a considerable amount of material sourcing and process preparation was done in advance.
This is the third 24,000 -TEU container ship to be delivered to Evergreen this year.
The first boxship from the series, named Ever Alot, was handed over to the Taiwanese shipowner in June 2022, followed by the second one, Ever Aria, in September 2022
