World's Biggest Ship

The world’s largest ship is being built in a shipyard in South Korea by Maersk Line.

The Triple E is longer than four football pitches, heavier than 55 nuclear submarines and it is able to carry more than 300 million bottles of wine. Built in Denmark, a team of pioneering shipbuilders have built a record-breaking ship, 40% larger than existing cargo ships, it carries more than 18,000 containers.

Transporting everything from cars to food and trainers between the world's busiest port in Hong Kong, to the largest port in Rotterdam, this wonder of the ocean changes the face of global shipping forever. This series charts the epic battle to build this super ship through the eyes of the team and through the use of stunning 3D CGI animations to reveal how it was built.
