Video: Giant Container Ship in the Port of Hamburg
In this episode of smartPORT TV we pay a visit to the giant container vessel "CMA CMG Antoine de Saint Exupéry" that is currently docking at Burchardkai in the Port of Hamburg. The giant lady from France is 400m long and can hold up to 20.600 standard container (TEU). The Eiffel Tower or the Empire State Building could, in theory, fit horizontally. 50 years ago in 1968 the first container ship entered the Port of Hamburg: The "American Lancer" mesured 213m in lenght and could "only" hold 1.200 TEU.
