Hyundai Mipo Shipbuilding has bagged contracts to build a 2,500TEU containership for an Asia-based shipowner.

The 197m long, 32.5m in wide vessel will be built in Ulsan, Korea, at the Hyundai Mipo Shipyard yard and due for delivery in the second half of 2020. 

The ship is equipped with a scrubber to meet the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) sulfur dioxide emissions regulations, which will be in operation since 2020.

An official of Hyundai Heavy Industries Group said: "The demand for dismantling of old container ships has been steadily increasing due to the environmental regulations, and mid-sized container ships are expected to continue to be used in this route due to the surging volume of transport in Southeast Asia, including Vietnam. We will do our best to win various ship types based on advanced technology and quality.”
