Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) recently announced that their vessel ONE AQUILA has been delivered to Kure Shipyard home of the Japan Marine United Corporation. The vessel was laden with 14,000 TEU capacity.
One of the oldest and largest shipping companies in the world, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) is the sublet owner of the vessel.
The design of the hull on the ONE AQUILA allows for improved cargo-loading efficiency due to the engine-room space being minimized. Furthermore, the vessel is installed with a dual main engine system that provides two output ranges (high and low) allowing for increased operational flexibility and fuel-consumption, the result is a significant decrease in carbon dioxide emissions.
The bridge of the vessel is replete with the Integrated Navigation System (INS) which consolidates all functions of vessel systems. Moreover, an extra wide window is used allowing the vessel operators to have a larger field of vision from the wing of the vessel’s bridge when berthing/unberthing to maximize safety.
ONE AQUILA will be phased into THE Alliance’s Asia to North America (West Coast) PN3 service with its port rotation Hong Kong, Yantian, Ningbo, Shanghai, Pusan, Prince Rupert, Vancouver, Seattle, Pusan, Kwangyang, and Hong Kong.
