Seaspan Corporation yesterday took delivery of a new 13,100 TEU containership, the COSCO Development, its ninth delivery so far this year.

The ship, constructed by Hyundai Heavy Industries, expands the Hong Kong-based company’s operating fleet to 64 vessels and it is on charter to COSCO Container Lines under a 12-year, fixed-rate time charter.

It is the third of eight 13,100 TEU sister ships and the 13th of a total of 18 vessels to be delivered by Seaspan to COSCO.

Eight further new containerships are scheduled to be delivered to Seaspan by 2014.
