SHANGHAI Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co has delivered the 20,000 TEU containership, named the Cosco Shipping Virgo, that is 399.8 metres long and 58.6 metres wide with a maximum capacity of 200,000 tonnes.

The ship was delivered to China Cosco Shipping Corporation and will be deployed on trade routes between the Middle East and Europe.
It is the third new ship the shipbuilder has delivered in May after finishing two 400,000-tonne very large ore carriers (VLOC), reported Xinhua news agency.
There are 79 container ships above 19,000 TEU worldwide and 50 more are still under construction. The China State Shipbuilding Corporation, Waigaoqiao's parent company, has 17 orders, equivalent to one third of the global total.
Earlier this year Waigaoqiao delivered the Cosco Shipping Taurus, also a 20,000 TEU containership, to Cosco Shipping.
