OOCL secures fourth 24,188 TEU giant vessel

Orient Overseas Container Line Ltd. (OOCL) has expanded its fleet structure welcoming a new 24,188 TEU mega vessel.

The Dalian COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (DACKS) shipyard has named the brand new container vessel ‘OOCL Felixstowe’.

OOCL introduced its first 24,000 TEU vessel to its fleet in February 2023.

Zhijian Yang, Chief Executive Officer of OOCL, said: “We ordered this series of ultra large container vessels not only to provide better services to our customers, but also to enhance our cost competitiveness and to seize the initiative for future development. 

“I firmly believe that, with leadership from COSCO SHIPPING Group, support from all stakeholders and the power of synergy, OOCL will certainly reach new heights of creating greater value for customers, partners, shareholders, and indeed society at large.”

The OOCL Felixstowe is the fourth of 12 eco-friendly 24,188 TEU boats to be delivered to OOCL, and it will serve the Asia-Europe LL3 service alongside its three sibling vessels.

The port rotation will be the following:

Shanghai – Xiamen – Nansha – Hong Kong – Yantian – Cai Mep – Singapore – Piraeus – Hamburg – Rotterdam – Zeebrugge – Valencia – Piraeus – Abu Dhabi – Singapore – Shanghai 

In May 2023, OOCL hosted the naming ceremony of its second 24,188 TEU vessel container at the Dalian COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (DACKS) shipyard.

One week later, the carrier welcomed its third 24,188 TEU container vessel to join its fleet.
