On February 14, the 24,000TEU ultra-large container ship No. 7 built by Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of China Shipbuilding Corporation, was successfully docked at the longest dock on Changxing Island. This is the first major production node achieved by the company in the Year of the Tiger, marking that the construction of the world’s largest container ship has entered a new stage of comprehensive acceleration, and it also sounded the marching horn to seize the operation and production tasks in 2022. 

Hudong Zhonghua has a total of 8 orders for this type of ship, and 7 ships are under construction at the same time. This year, it plans to deliver 3 ships, which will be independently developed and designed by the company. Equipped with a hybrid scrubber desulfurization device, it adopts the world’s latest green, environmentally friendly, high-efficiency, energy-saving, safe, and reliable design solutions. Fully reflected, it is currently the largest ship type in the world.

It is particularly worth mentioning that Hudong Zhonghua first adopted the bubble drag reduction system and the shaft generator system on the 24,000TEU ultra-large container ship, which became the two highlights of this type of ship. 

The bubble drag reduction system can not only effectively reduce the total energy consumption of the ship, but also reduce the corresponding total carbon emissions by 3%-4%, which can roughly reduce more than 6,000 tons in one year of operation. The use of shaft generators can reduce fuel consumption, optimize EEDI energy efficiency indicators, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and at the same time significantly reduce the fuel costs of ships, with considerable economic and social benefits. 

In the face of the heavy production task of multiplying large container ships and LNG ships in 2022, Hudong Zhonghua will take the spirit of the group company’s 2022 annual work conference as a guide, take precautions, implement precise policies, and fully implement epidemic prevention and control, production preparation and “stabilizing labor and ensuring production”. In the first week of Spring Festival work, the return to work rate reached more than 90%, which provided strong support for ensuring the completion of the annual task goals and improving the quality of economic operation.

虎年第一大节点!沪东中华建造世界最大24000TEU箱船7号船入坞

2月14日,中国船舶集团旗下沪东中华建造的24000TEU超大型集装箱船7号船在长兴岛最长船坞顺利入坞。这是公司虎年实现的第一个生产大节点,标志着这一全球最大型集装箱船建造进入全面提速新阶段,也吹响了夺取2022年经营生产任务的进军号。

沪东中华手持该船型订单共8艘,同时在建7艘,今年计划交付3艘,由该公司自主研发设计。配备了混合式Scrubber脱硫装置,采用全球最新绿色环保、高效节能、安全可靠的设计方案,其独有的小球鼻艏、大直径螺旋桨和节能导管等装置,使船舶的快速性能和低能耗得到充分体现,是当前全球装箱量级别最大的船型。

特别值得一提的是,沪东中华首次在24000TEU超大型集装箱船上采用了气泡减阻系统和轴带发电机系统,成为该型船的两大亮点。

气泡减阻系统不仅可有效降低船舶总能耗,而且可减少相应总量3%-4%的碳排放,一年营运可大致减少6000多吨。而采用轴带发电机能够降低燃油消耗,可以优化EEDI能效指标,减少温室气体排放,同时可以明显降低船舶的燃料费用,经济和社会效益可观。

面对2022年大型箱船和LNG船倍增式的繁重生产任务,沪东中华以集团公司2022年度工作会议精神为指引,未雨绸缪,精准施策,全面落实疫情防控、生产准备和“稳用工、保生产、送温暖”等各项工作,春节上班第一周返岗复工率就达到了90%以上,为确保完成年度任务目标,提升经济运行质量提供了有力支撑。
