CONTAINER shipping alliance Ocean Network Express (ONE), formed by Japanese carriers MOL, NYK and 'K' Line, has received the 14,000-TEU vessel 'ONE Cygnus'
CONTAINER shipping alliance Ocean Network Express (ONE), formed by Japanese carriers MOL, NYK and 'K' Line, has received the 14,000-TEU vessel 'ONE Cygnus'. It is the last box ship in a series of seven newbuilds that have been delivered since June 2018.
The ship is equipped with safety and environmentally-friendly capabilities, such as structural arrest technology and highly efficient welding functionalities. Its hull form is designed to optimise cargo-loading efficiency by minimising engine room space.
It also has excellent structural safety due to its 'crack arrest technology' and is equipped with 'dual rating system' technology in its main diesel engine, which allows for operational flexibility and a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, reported London's Port Technology.
The containership's navigation bridge uses the Integrated Navigation System (INS), which consolidates the functions of vessel systems to efficiently cut the workload of operators.
The newbuild will be deployed on the Asia to Europe (FE3) service under THE Alliance, of which ONE is a member. The port rotation is: Hong Kong, Xiamen, Kaohsiung, Shenzhen-Yantian, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, London Gateway, Singapore and back to Hong Kong.
