OOCL adds mega 24,188 TEU container vessel to fleet

Orient Overseas Container Line Ltd. (OOCL), has welcomed another large new 24,188 TEU container vessel to join its fleet.

Officially named as ‘OOCL Turkiye’ at a ceremony held at Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (“NACKS”) shipyard, this new vessel becomes the third 24,188 TEU vessel to be received by OOCL in a series of 12.

This comes six days after OOCL hosted a naming event for another 24,000 TEU boxship, named ‘OOCL PIRAEUS’.

The new container vessel was welcomed by a number of distinguished guests, OOCL’s partners and customers, and named by Ms. Jane LIU, Chairwoman at SaiLun Group Co., Ltd., a leading global tire manufacturer. 

‘OOCL Turkiye’ will reportedly join its sibling vessels OOCL Spain and OOCL Piraeus in serving OOCL’s Asia-Europe LL3 service loop.

At the ceremony, Chen Shuai, Director of Network Planning Center and Procurement Management Center of OOCL, thanked NACKS for their technologies and craftsmanship.

Shaui believes that the introduction of this vessel is further proof of OOCL’s commitment to sustainability and environment.

In February of this year, OOCL introduced its first 24,000 TEU boxship.
