Taiwan Shipowner Orders
Five New Containerships
From Japanese Dockyard
Evergreen, the Taiwan shipown- er, has confirmed placing orders for five new containerships, which are said to be among the world's largest.
Onomichi Dockyard in Japan will build the ships, with deliveries ex- pected to begin in July 1992.
A spokesman for Evergreen said the company's initial intent is to use the 4,500-TEU post-Panamax ves- sels in its trans-Pacific operations.
At present, Evergreen operates six 2,728-TEU-capacity ships in its weekly Taiwan-U.S. West Coast ser- vice. Reports indicate that these six might be completely replaced by the five new containerships.
