Ship fitted with the world’s first “dual rating system”
Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that it has launched a new mega-ship, the ONE APUS, which has a carrying capacity of 14,000 TEU.
The ship was successfully delivered at Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation.
The sublet owner is Nippon Yusen Kaisha.
This is ONE’s second delivery this year, and the sixth in a series of seven newly built 14,000 TEU magenta containerships.
Equipped with outstanding safety and environmentally-friendly capabilities such as structural arrest technology and highly efficient welding technology, ONE APUS employs a hull form with minimized engine-room space to improve cargo-loading efficiency.
ONE APUS is also fitted with the world’s first “dual rating system” technology in the main diesel engine to facilitate flexibility in operations and boost fuel efficiency to significantly reduce greenhouse gases.
The Crack Arrest Technology is also implemented to strengthen and provide excellent structural safety.
With the Integrated Navigation System (INS), the navigation bridge consolidates functions of vessel systems to efficiently reduce the workload of operators.
Additionally, a wide window is also newly adopted for widened visibility, aiding the view of vessel operators from the wing of the vessel’s bridge when berthing and un-berthing.
The new ship will be deployed on East Coast 4 (EC4) service (Asia to US East Coast), under THE Alliance (THEA).
