ONE introduces 24,000 TEU giant boxship


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.

“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.
