ONE Receives First New 14,000 TEU Magenta Ship

Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced that it has received ONE Stork, the company's first magenta-coloured new building containership with a carrying capacity of 14,000 TEU, at Kure Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation.

The vessel, ONE Stork – sublet-owned by Nippon Yusen Kaisha, has a capacity of 18 rows by 11 tiers in its hold and 20 rows by 9 tiers on its deck in a hull form that allows improved cargo-loading efficiency through minimized engine-room space.

It also applies the duel system in its main engine, which is capable to choose two other output ranges of high and low to allow flexible operation and improved fuel-consumption rate, resulting in a significant reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

She will phase in THE Alliance's Asia to North America (East Coast) EC4 service with its port rotation Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Yantian, Cai Mep, Singapore, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Charleston, New York, and Singapore.

Jeremy Nixon, Chief Executive Officer of ONE, said: “ONE is excited to take delivery of first new-building containership with our new corporate colour, magenta.

“The magenta colour shows our intentional drive to do things differently and explore newness in this market.

“There is no doubt that she will be one of our most important core fleet.”
