(ECNS) -- The world's largest multipurpose heavy lift vessel, the Pileck, departed Shanghai on Sunday, transporting Chinese vaccine production equipment to Morocco to enable the manufacture of COVID-19 vaccines in Africa.

The largest vaccine production plant China has exported to Africa will enable the manufacture of 20 kinds of vaccines, including three kinds of COVID-19 vaccines in Africa, serving more than 60 percent of demand on the continent.

The production equipment's total volume is close to 40,000 cubic meters, including 118 large-scale modules. The cargo covers an area of 10,000 square meters, nearly the size of 1.5 standard football fields.

After reaching the Port of Casablanca in Morocco, the equipment will be directly sent to the destination and set up at the highest possible speed.

The Pilecki was designed and manufactured by the Chinese-Polish Joint Stock Shipping Company during the COVID-19 pandemic, and all parties, including staff members at the shipyard and wharf, made every effort to ensure a timely delivery amid the lingering epidemic in Shanghai.

The giant vessel has a deadweight of approximately 62,000 tonnes, with five giant storage areas and a flight deck of nearly 5,000 square meters.
