Hitachi Zosen Completes 3,800-TEU

Containership Zhen He

The M.V. Zhen He, a containership capable of carrying 3,800-teu containers, was recently com- pleted at Hitachi Zosen's Ariake Works and deliv- ered to the owner, China Ocean Shipping Com- pany (COSCO). Hitachi Zosen is now building two sister ships for the same owner, scheduled for delivery this month and in June. The Zhen He is the largest type of container ship ever delivered by

Hitachi Zosen and is also reportedly one of the largest vessels that can enter Shanghai harbor and pass through the Panama Canal. The ship's load efficiency is enhanced by arranging the holds with 11 rows of spaces for containers, the first such design for Hitachi Zosen-built container ships.

This hold arrangement makes it possible for the ship to carry 3,800-teu containers, the largest number that can be carried by ships of this type and size. The Zhen He can also load 240 refrigera- tion containers on the upper deck, and its holds No. 2 and No. 6 are equipped to carry dangerous cargoes. The main engine is a Hitachi Zosen-

Sulzer 9RTA84C-type diesel engine. The Zhen He is 49,375-gt, 902 feet (275 m) long with a breadth of 106 feet (32 m) and depth of 70 feet (21 m). For more information on Hitachi Zosen,

Westport Designs New 45-Knot Hull Form

BILOXI. MISSISSIPPI 39535-4454 (601) 896-3736

The first hull for the pair of high-speed 100-foot (30 m) ferries being constructed for Catalina Express Lines sits outside one of Westport

Shipyard's high-bay buildings in Westport, Wash. The hull was fabricated in a new expandable form in use at the Westport facility.

Westport Shipyard, Inc., which reportedly pio- neered use of semi-automatic fiberglass equip- ment in expandable hull forms, has designed a mold that will produce an 85-foot (26 m) vessel capable of 45 knots. Westport's Randy Rust said that the hull form was originally designed for a yacht application but was adaptable to the 100-foot (30 m), 149-passenger ferries Westport is building for the Catalina Express Lines in Southern Cali- fornia. The hull form features propeller tunnels developed in conjunction with Ed Hagemann's

Hage-Marine, Inc. of Seattle. Jack Sarin said that the tunnel design provides a structure with efficient dynamic lift, while improving the interac- tion of the hull and propellers.
