Colombo Express is one of the largest container ships in the world. When launched in 2005, she was claimed by her owner to be the world's largest container ship, a title it held until the Emma Mærsk was launched in 2006.
Colombo Express holds 8,749 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU), 730 refrigerated (reefer) TEUs, is 1,099 feet (335 m) long, and has a beam, or width, of 140 feet (43 m). She is owned by the German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd, and operated by its Hapag-Lloyd Container Line division. She is named for Colombo, the largest city in Sri Lanka, which the predecessor company, North American Lloyd, first called on in 1886. She is the first of eight proposed Colombo Express class vessels, and is only slightly larger (approximately 4%) than her Savannah Express class cousins, the 8400 TEU (700 reefer) ships Savannah Express and Houston Express.
Colombo Express measures 93,750 gross tons and had a deadweight capacity of 104,400 metric tons. Her rated speed is 25.0 knots (46.3 km/h). Built in South Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries in 2004–2005, she was christened on 11 April 2005, and her diesel engine generates 93,500 horsepower (69,700 kW) of power.
Colombo Express operates out of the homeport of Hamburg, and will mainly travel from Europe to Southeast Asia and back in 56-day round-trips.
This is a 1/700 Revell plastic kit to build a replica of the Container Ship COLOMBO EXPRESS.
