Xin Los AngelesJust a few years ago the Xin Los Angeles was the largest containervessel around. But since the launching of the Emma Maersk and more recently the MSC Beatrice, the vessel is just one of the larger vessels amongst a fleet of very large container vessels. The Xin Los Angeles is 337 metres long, almost 46 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 a MAN B&W 12K98MC-C Mk6 engine, 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 scheduled to enter the port of Rotterdam this afternoon and will take berth at the ECT Delta terminal where she will stay for about 30 hours.
