WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The largest container ship to ever call on a North Carolina port is expected to visit the Port of Wilmington next week.
North Carolina port officials say the MV Hyundai Hope, which has a carrying capacity of 14,000 TEUs, is currently en route to the Wilmington port and should arrive at some point next week.
The North Carolina ports recently finished a project to expand the Port of Wilmington’s turning basin from 1,400 feet to 1,524 feet so the port could accommodate ultra-wide, 14,000-TEU container vessels.
