Ocean Network Express (ONE) announced that the vessel ONE Innovation, the company’s first 24,000 TEU class Megamax, was successfully delivered at Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation on 2 June.
The container ship is expected to help bring economies of scale and significantly lower carbon emissions through a state-of-the-art hull design that aims to maximise cargo intake and minimise fuel consumption, according to the carrier’s statement.
Moreover, the vessel is equipped with a bow windshield, an energy-saving device, and an exhaust gas cleaning system to meet the emission regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). It is also the first of the six new Megamax vessels that will enhance ONE’s fleet.
“ONE Innovation is the largest vessel in our fleet, and we are proud to have it as our flagship. This newly built vessel will help us pave the way for the sustainable development of global logistics and respond to customer requests with the world’s No. 1 quality of service,” said Yu Kurimoto, managing director of ONE.
The new vessel will be deployed on the Asia to Europe (FE3) service, under THE Alliance (THEA) network. The port rotation of the service is Ningbo – Xiamen – Kaohsiung – Yantian – Singapore – Rotterdam – Hamburg – Antwerp – Southampton – Algeciras – Singapore – Yantian – Hong Kong – Kaohsiung – Ningbo.
