Build New Hospital Ship

MSC Group, MSC Foundation, and Mercy Ships International have agreed to construct a new hospital ship to provide free surgery and training to thousands in Africa annually.

The project, backed by a generous donation from MSC Foundation, will expand the Mercy Ships fleet, allowing the organization to increase its capacity for training and advocacy efforts.

The new ship will have living spaces for approximately 600 crew members and guests, a two-deck hospital, six operating rooms, a fully equipped lab, and advanced training spaces.

Its hospital will span two decks and 7,000 square metres, featuring six operating rooms, a fully equipped laboratory, and state-of-the-art training spaces such as a simulation lab.

MSC and Mercy Ships have partnered since 2011 to operate hospital ships, with MSC providing logistical support, container delivery of supplies, and infrastructure support. MSC’s services range from local shipping agency and terminal handling to logistics, storage, and inland transportation. MSC has also provided technical advice for the design of a new vessel to improve efficiency.
