A magenta colored newbuilding containership, named ONE GRUS, has been handed over to Ocean Network Express (ONE), marking the first delivery for the company in 2019.

The 14,000 TEU ship is the fifth magenta colored boxship newbuild to join ONE’s fleet and was built by Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation. The sublet owner of the vessel is Nippon Yusen Kaisha.

As informed by ONE, the ship is equipped with structural arrest technology to bolster its structural safety as well as a hull form that improves efficiency in cargo-loading, which is achieved by minimized engine-room space.

“Additionally, the vessel is equipped with world’s first ‘dual rating system’ technology in its main diesel engine, with two selected output for high or low rating. This allows flexibility in operations and improve in fuel efficiency, resulting in significant reduction of greenhouse gases,” ONE said.

The navigation bridge adopted the Integrated Navigation System (INS), which consolidates functions of vessel systems to reduce the workload of operators. Another safety improvement adopted in the vessel design is a wide window for increased visibility when berthing and unberthing.

The ULCV will phase in THE Alliance’s Asia to Europe 5 (FE5) service, with its port rotation Leam Chabang, Cai Mep, Singapore, Colombo, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, Southampton, Jeddah, Colombo, Singapore and Laem Chabang.
