The shipping line said the newbuilding adopts the Sea Sword Bow design to improve energy efficiency and optimise hydrodynamic performances. Together with the installation of scrubber system, the ship has the benefits of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and cost saving.
The vessel is also equipped with Total Watch System which enables safer and more efficient navigation. It is one of the first vessels to receive DNV GL SmartShip notations, including 'SmartShip OE (Operating Enhancement)' and 'PE (Performance Enhancement)', and CR Classification Society's 'Smartship H, Et, I' notations.
YM Capacity will be deployed on Yang Ming's JTS service starting October 28. In order to expand its market in Southeast Asia, the shipping line is to improve the JTS service's Japan-Taiwan-South China coverage by adding Port Kelang, Singapore, and Manila South Port effective October 21.
Through the linkage of Kaohsiung, Port Kelang and Singapore, the service will complement its current offerings in Southeast Asia and provide an easy connection with Yang Ming's global service network. With the deployment of YM Capacity, the efficiency of JTS service will be significantly enhanced, and Yang Ming's competitiveness in Southeast Asia will be greatly strengthened.
The revised port rotation of JTS will be Nagoya, Tokyo, Chiba, Yokohama, Keelung, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Shekou, Port Kelang, Singapore, Manila South Port, Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Shekou, Xiamen and back to Nagoya.
