Taiwanese container shipping company Evergreen Marine Corporation has confirmed an order for 20 more ultra-large containerships at Samsung Heavy Industries as salvors continue to try to refloat the Evergreen-chartered MV Ever Given from the Suez Canal.
As we reported on March 23 just prior to grounding, Evergreen had shortlisted a handful of shipyards to construction the vessels. A new stock filing today confirms that Evergreen has selected South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries to build all twenty of the ships.
