UASC Barzan, the flagship of the United Arab Shipping Comnpany’s fleet, arrived at DP World’s London Gateway container terminal in Stanford-le-Hope port late on Sunday night.

Barzan is an ultra large container ship and one of the largest in the world with a capacity of 18,800-teu.

She is the first of a series of six 18,800 twenty-foot equivalent units TEU container ships to be built for UASC in South Korea.

The ship departed the port Tuesday morning after unloading 4,000 containers. At the time of writing on Tuesday afternoon she was making 11-knots in the English Channel, bound for Hamburg.

UASC Barzan was damaged earlier in the month when a fire broke out in one of her containers while the ship was en-route from the Far East to the UK.

The ship’s crew extinguished the fire at sea, but she was diverted to the Port of Rotterdam, where she remained for more than a week before arriving at DP World London Gateway.
