Hyundai Merchant Marine’s 11,000 TEU vessel HMM PROMISE establishes a new record for Terminal de Contêineres de Paranaguá
HMM PROMISE and HMM BLESSING were handed over to Hyundai Merchant Marine in June. They were originally ordered by Oceanbulk Container Carriers and, according to TCP’s COO Mauricio Toti, are the biggest containerships to date to be equipped with scrubbers.
The maiden voyage of HMM PROMISE also took in calls in Buenos Aires and Santos on the ECSA range, from Korea via the New Panama locks.
At 330m long and 48.32m wide, the vessel is the biggest yet to call TCP, part of China Merchants Ports Holding (CM Ports) since March this year.
