Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that ONE AQUILA, its new 14,000 TEU container vessel, has been delivered to Japan Marine United Corporation’s Kure Shipyard.

The ship, to which Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) is sublet owner, employs a hull form that minimizes engine-room space to boost cargo-loading efficiency.

This dual system is also applied in ONE AQUILA’s main engine, allowing for flexible operation, an improved fuel-consumption rate, and a significant reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

Dr Noel Hacegaba outlines recent developments in the shipping industry and the quest for efficiency in a Port Technology technical paper

The navigation bridge has adopted the Integrated Navigation System (INS), which consolidates functions of vessel systems.

In addition, a wide window has been implemented to give ship operators a wider eyesight from the wing of the vessel’s bridge, which is designed to increase safety while berthing and unberthing.

Before its delivery to Hiroshima, ONE AQUILA was also extensively tested during a sea-trial.

With ONE AQUILA now delivered, it is expected to join THE Alliance’s Asia to North America (West Coast) PN3 service, including visits to ports in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Vancouver and Seattle.
