Building the World’s Largest Ship (in 76 seconds)

While the Chinese seem to manufacture nearly everything that goes inside of them, the South Koreans are the ones who actually built the boats that make tran-oceanic shipping possible.

This video timelapse from Discovery Channel shows one of the new generation container ships being built in DSME shipyard in Okpo South Korea. These Triple-E vessels by Maersk are the world’s largest and will take advantage of economy of scale, increased energy efficiency, and new environmental standards to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% per container moved.

This timelapse video was a joint venture between Discovery Channel and Maersk and consists of 50,000 photos taken over 3 months.
