Naming & Delivery of 1,096TEU Container Ship 'TS SHANGHAI" - Kyokuyo Shipyard

August 23 was the day of the departure of our latest product, S545. We had been a little bit anxious after bad weather on previous days, but the blue sky shining through the morning clouds melted our worries away. The ship was a container carrier that could load up to 1,096TEU, and she was the first in a series of sister vessels Kyokuyo is building for Taiwan-based T.S. Lines.

Fireworks reverberated in the now bright sky, to celebrate the birth of the container carrier.
