MV Barzan is an ultra large container ship. It is the first of a series of six 18,800 TEU container ships built for United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) in South Korea. As of 2015, it stood among the largest container ships in the world. Barzan was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in Mokpo, South Korea in 2015. She has a deadweight of 199,744 tonnes, and gross tonnage of 195,636. It took the shipyard six months to build her (from steel cutting to launching).
Classed under DNV GL as the first ship ever to have “Gas Ready” class notation, Barzan has, according to the builder, the lowest per-container level of carbon emissions. Her “Energy Efficiency Design Index” is quoted as almost 50% less than the International Maritime Organization limit set for 2025
