The world's first 2,000-metric-ton all-electric cargo ship has been launched in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province.

The ship, manufactured by the Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Ltd, represents a technological breakthrough as it is the first in the world to use lithium battery in a fully powered cargo vessel running in the inland section of the Pearl River.

After being charged for two hours, the ship can run 80 kilometers, according to Guangzhou Shipyard International. The company is the mainland's first shipbuilding company listed in Shanghai and Hong Kong, and is wholly owned by CSSC Offshore & Marine Engineering (Group) Company Ltd under the China State Shipbuilding Corporation Group.
