Today we have the containership Cosco Asia (IMO: 9345403, Port of Registry: Panama) featuring as the Ship of the Day. The Cosco Asia is a 349 metres long, 45 metres wide ship with a maximum teu capacity of 10,000 and a deadweight tonnage of 110,000. She was christened on July 26, 2007 in South Korea and made her maiden voyage on August 9, 2007 from China to Europe. The vessel was the first of six identical ships being built for COSCO by Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard. Her sister vessels are: Cosco Europe, Cosco Africa, Cosco America, Cosco Oceania and Cosco Pacific. The vessel realized a high-level of automation and is very environmentally friendly. It was classed by Lloyd's Register to stringent environmental standards, reflecting COSCO's commitment to its UN Global Compact responsibilities.
The Cosco Asia arrived last night at the Euromax terminal, Rotterdam with the last port of call at Hamburg.
