Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that the company’s first ever 24,000 TEU class Megamax was successfully delivered at Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation.
With a capacity up to 24,136 TEU, ‘ONE INNOVATION’ aims 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.
The vessel is reportedly equipped with a bow windshield, an energy saving device, and an exhaust gas cleaning system to meet the emission regulations of IMO.
It is also said to be the first of six new Megamax vessels joining ONE’s core fleet.
The vessel is expected to be deployed on the Asia to Europe (FE3) service, under THE Alliance.
ONE plans to offer more competitive and best-in-class services to its customers with decreased environmental impact.
“ONE INNOVATION is the largest vessel in our fleet, and we are proud to have it as our flagship,” said Managing Director of ONE, Yu Kurimoto, during a commemorative party.
Kurimoto added that the newly built vessel will help ONE pave the way for the sustainable development of global logistics and respond to customer requests.
In 2022, ONE announced its ‘Green Vision’, which aims to achieve net-zero by 2050.
“We are actively working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our fleet, and we are confident that this vessel will contribute to this effort and bring innovation to global logistics,” added Kurimoto.
