Wan Hai Lines Ltd. held a ship naming ceremony for WAN HAI A07 and WAN HAI A08, accompanied by a charity donation on the 20th of October at Samsung Heavy Industries Geoje shipyard.
WAN HAI A07 and WAN HAI A08 are the first two vessels in the series of 13,100 TEU containerships built by Samsung Heavy Industries Geoje shipyard. Ms Iris Choi, Vice President of the Global Sales Department, LOTTE Confectionery Co., Ltd and Ms Jeongmin Lee, SC Improvement Manager (North Asia) of Logistics, Dow Chemical Korea Ltd., named these two vessels, respectively, during the ceremony.
The 13,100 TEU series is designed with a length overall of 335 meters, a breadth of 51 meters, a draft of 16 meters and a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots, and is currently one of the largest ship types in Wan Hai Lines’ owned fleet. In addition, the containership considers energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly aspects, equipped with fully balanced twisted bulb rudders, a pre-swirl fin, and an AMP (Alternative Maritime Power) system. Furthermore, all the ships delivered are certified with “Smart Ship” notations and meet the highest level of requirement for EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) for phase III in advance. The first vessel – WAN HAI A07 will be delivered at the end of October 2022 and deployed on Asia to North America service. These new vessels are part of Wan Hai Lines’ efforts to ensure its continuous pursuit of fleet upgrades to provide customers with the best quality service.
In addition to naming the newbuilding, Wan Hai Lines also donated necessities to two charities in Geoje, South Korea – Geoje Community Social Welfare Center and Okpo Community Social Welfare Center. Wan Hai hopes this small token can benefit the local community. The charity donation represents part of Wan Hai Lines’ motto, “We carry, we care.” The company is committed to fulfilling its corporate social responsibility, providing quality service to customers and bringing love to society.
