The biggest possible vessels to ply the Yangtze river are now being constructed under a 300 million yuan ($47 million) China COSCO Shipping Corporation funded programme in Yangzhou, east China's Jiangsu province.
The six 1,149 TEU capacity vessels ordered are expected to become the largest in service in the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River once ready, says Xin Hua News.
The carrying capacity of the newbuildings are double of existing vessels at the Yangtze river, and their daily bunker fuel consumption is estimated to be 20% lesser than similar ships.
All six vessels are scheduled to enter operations by June 2019 and will be operated by the Wuhan New Port Administration Committee.
