ONE adds 10 green ships to fleet

Long Beach, California, USA - July 24, 2023: Port container traffic leaves the Long Beach Container Terminal.

Ocean Network Express (ONE) has ordered 10 large new container vessels with a carrying capacity of over 13,700 TEU.

The new container ships will be delivered in 2025 and 2026.

The ocean carrier said that this new order is in line with its medium-term strategy announced in March 2022 and follows the 10 vessels ordered in May 2022.

The 10 new vessels will be ready for methanol and ammonia and will be equipped with a bow cover and other energy saving technologies.

ONE has also started discussions with the shipyard and equipment manufacturers to implement onboard carbon capture and storage on delivery, according to the ocean carrier.

“By ensuring a stable deployment of new, state-of-the-art container vessels, without being constrained by short-term fluctuations in the container market, the company aims to strengthen its fleet competitiveness and meet customer demand for building and maintaining an efficient and reliable supply chain,” said ONE in an official statement.  

Green strategy is a top management priority for ONE as the company aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

In January 2023, a new Freightliner service made its inaugural journey from Southampton to Crewe using entirely ONE funded GD+ green biofuel.
