Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) is pleased to announce that ONE GRUS, with a carrying capacity of 14,000 TEU, has been successfully delivered at Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation. The sublet owner is Nippon Yusen Kaisha.
This is ONE’s first delivery this year, and the 5th newly built 14,000 TEU magenta containership, after ONE COLUMBA (delivery date on 16th November 2018). It is equipped with outstanding safety and environmentally-friendly capabilities such as structural arrest technology and highly efficient welding technology.
ONE GRUS employs a hull form that improves efficiency in cargo-loading, which is achieved by minimized engine-room space. It also has excellent structural safety due to its Crack Arrest Technology. Additionally, the vessel is equipped with world’s first “dual rating system” technology in its main diesel engine, with two selected output for a high or low rating. This allows flexibility in operations and improves in fuel efficiency, resulting in significant reduction of greenhouse gases.
The navigation bridge adopted the Integrated Navigation System (INS), which consolidates functions of vessel systems to efficiently reduce the workload of operators. Furthermore, for safety improvement, a wide window is also newly employed for widen visibility which aid the vessel operators from the wing of vessel’s bridge when berthing and unberthing.
She 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.
