The world's largest container ship MSC Gulsun arrived at container terminal DCT Gdańsk on Friday. During its stop, 11,000 containers will be reloaded, which means the largest regular container exchange in Europe. MSC Gulsun is the first ship in the world with a width of 24 rows of containers and a capacity of 23,756 TEU. In practice, this means that the ship can take on board, e.g. 8.4 million microwaves or 47,512 cars.
MSC Gulsun was created at Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea. The ship is almost 400 meters long and 61.5 meters wide, which compares to the size of four football fields.
