Cosco YantianToday's SotD should have been the Emma Maersk, but since she was discussed just one week ago, the Cosco Yantian will have the honour to appear as Ship of the Day. The Cosco Yantian(IMO: 9305594, Port of Registry: Piraeus, Greece) is one of the largest container vessels nowadays, together with its sisters: Cosco Hellas, Cosco Ningbo, Cosco Beijing and Cosco Guangzhou. Only the in 2005 and 2006 built Maersk S-class vessels and three in 2006 for CSCL built containervessels are larger. This post-panamax container vessel is 350 metres long, almost 43 metres wide, has a deadweight tonnage of 107,000 and a teu capacity of 9,450. The Cosco Beijing is currently sailing on the AE1-loop which connects Asia and Europe. She will arrive later today at the ECT Terminal, Rotterdam, with the last port of call at Hamburg. The vessel will leave the following day for Antwerp before returning to the Far East.
