Wan Hai

Wan Hai Lines Ltd. held ship naming ceremonies for WAN HAI 287 and WAN HAI 288 accompanied by a charity donation today (29. Jun.). However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a physical ceremony was replaced by an online one.

WAN HAI 287 and WAN HAI 288 are the 4th、5th vessels in a series of 2,038 TEU containerships built by China Shipbuilding Trading Co., LTD., and Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard Co., LTD. Ms. Bin Li, General Manager of Midea International Logistics Technology Co., Ltd. and Ms. Li Gui Lan, General Manager of SHENZHEN MAOXIONG CO., LTD., named these two vessels respectively during the ceremony.

The 2,038 TEU series is designed with LOA 175m, a deadweight capacity of 23,802 mt on 10.5 m draft and a maximum cruising speed of 20.66 nautical miles. The design of the 2,038 TEU series takes energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly aspect into account. Moreover, all the ships delivered are certified with “Smart Ship” notations by international well-known classification societies. The newbuildings are part of Wan Hai Lines efforts to ensure their continuous pursuit of fleet upgrades to provide the most quality service to customers.

WAN HAI 287 will be delivered on July 5th at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard. After delivery, she will join Wan Hai Lines’ Japan-Vietnam-Malaysia service to provide efficient delivery service among the corridor.

In addition to naming the newbuildings, Wan Hai Lines also made charitable donations to Guangzhou City Receiving Social Donation Workstation and Shenzhen Disabled Persons Federation, two local welfare organizations focusing on care for families with low income or difficult situations, autistic children and mentally disabled children. The charity donations represent part of Wan Hai Lines motto, “WE CARRY, WE CARE,” as the company is committed to fulfilling its corporate social responsibility, providing quality service to customers and bringing love to society.
