      07/11/2019

Singapore-based shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE) has taken delivery of the 14,000 TEU containership ONE Cygnus from Japan Marine United Corporation’s shipyard at Kure, Hiroshima.

This is ONE’s third delivery this year after the ONE Apus was delivered in April 2019.

The 364-meter ONE Cygnus is also the last in the series of seven newly-built, 138,611 dwt magenta containerships.

All units were delivered between June 2018 and July 2019.

ONE, a joint venture of Japanese shipping companies Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, added that the vessel features the world’s first “dual rating system” technology in its main diesel engine, capable of adopting either high or low output ranges, allowing operational flexibility and improved fuel-consumption rate.

The boxship will be deployed on the Asia to Europe 3 (FE3) service, under THE Alliance (THEA), with a port rotation of Hong Kong – Xiamen – Kaohsiung – Yantian – Rotterdam – Hamburg – Antwerp – Le Havre – London Gateway – Singapore – Hong Kong.
