Xin Los AngelesJust a few months ago the Xin Los Angeles was the largest containervessel around. But since the launching of the Emma Maersk and the upcoming launch of the Estelle Maersk, the vessel is 'just' one of the bigger ones. The Xin Los Angeles is 336.7 metres long, 45.6 metres wide and has a maximum draught of 15 metres. She can carry a maximum of 18 rows of containers by eight tiers on the weather deck and 16 rows by 10 tiers in the holds which gives the vessel a total capacity of 9,600 teu. The ship is propelled by an MAN B&W 12K98MC-C Mk6, with a power of 68,520 kW. During sea trials the ship achieved a ballast service speed of 25.4 knots. The CSCL Pusan and Xin Shanghai are her sistervessels.

The Xin Los Angeles is expected to arrive later this morning at the ECT terminal, Rotterdam. The next port of call will be Hamburg. She will return within two months to Rotterdam.
