By Vessels

CMA CGM Group has a new enormous ship that joins the UK ship register - "CMA CGM Marco Polo" with the impressive 174, 343 GT.
The first of its kind part of the new 16,000 TEU container ships series built for Asia-Europe sailing.
Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co Ltd created the world's largest container ship for the moment.

The container ship is designed with new technologies with improved performance, safety and care for the environment.
Features include a mid-ship deckhouse, an electronic-injection engine that considerably reduces oil and fuel consumption, fuel tanks defended by a double hull, a Fast Oil Recovery System, a Pre-Swirl Stator, and a twisted leading edge rudder. It also features an all-new, chemical-free ballast water treatment system that protects marine ecosystems by limiting the transfer of micro-organisms from ocean to ocean.
CMA CGM Marco Polo is not only the biggest ship in UK ship register but also the biggest container ship in the world.
