ONE introduces 12 methanol dual-fuel vessels

Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) has signed several Ship Building Contracts with Jiangnan Shipyard and Yangzijiang Shipbuilding for the construction of 12 methanol dual-fuel containerships.

The vessels will reportedly have cutting-edge technology such as improved hull design, waste heat recovery systems, and a bow windscreen.

According to ONE, selected ships will also be outfitted with an air lubrication system and a shaft generator to aid in the exploration of possible fuel efficiency improvements and GHG emission reductions.

These innovations aim to help accelerate ONE’s decarbonisation efforts and ensure compliance with regulations in the shipping industry.

Jeremy Nixon, CEO of ONE, affirmed: “Our decision to invest in methanol-dual fuel vessels aligns with ONE’s Green Strategy as part of our key initiatives. Upcoming new fleet is pivotal in achieving our goal of deploying the first alternative fuel ships by 2030 and marks a significant milestone in our journey towards a greener and more sustainable maritime industry.”

Each shipyard will build six containerships that will reportedly have a carrying capacity of 13,000 TEU. The vessels are scheduled to be delivered in early 2027.

Additionally, ONE announced that it will launch a new containership service between Savannah and West India in May 2024.
