Ocean Network Express (ONE) has signed ship building contracts with Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd and Nihon Shipyard Co, Ltd.

The carrier has ordered five vessels from each of the shipbuilding companies, adding a total of 10 modern very large containerships to its fleet.

The newly ordered ships have a nominal capacity of more than 13,700 TEU and are expected to be delivered by 2025.

According to ONE, this investment embodies its Midterm Strategy to safeguard a sustainable supply chain for the future and underscore its green strategy and decarbonisation plan.

The 10 vessels are designed with the highest efficiency standards as well as a variety of cutting-edge technologies to reduce navigational impacts to the environment.

The fleet will also enable ONE to broaden the exploration of long-term alternative fuels and decarbonisation technologies in the future.
