Wan Hai Lines receives 3,055 TEU container ship from Japan Marine United
A new 3,055 TEU container ship has been shipped to Wan Hai Lines by Japan Marine United Corporation (Japan Marine United Co., Ltd).
A total of eight container vessels with a design capacity of 3,055 TEU were ordered by Wan Hai Lines from Japan Marine United Corporation, under construction by Japan Marine United Corporation Kure Shipyard.
Containers with a maximum of 12 rows x 6 stages in the hold and a maximum of 14 rows x 7 stages on the deck can be borne by the newly built 3,055 TEU container ships.
WAN HAI 323, delivered on December 7, 2020, is the third Wan Hai Lines vessel to be delivered as part of their continuous fleet upgrade efforts to provide customers with the highest quality service.
WAN HAI 323 is 203.5 metres in length, 16.6 metres in depth and 11.5 metres in draught.
The 3,055 TEU container ships designed for Wan Hai Lines have improved environmental and operational performance significantly. They are energy efficient and conform with the current environmental regulatory requirements.
Using the latest analysis technologies, the vessel design has a large optimum hull shape that pursues low strength and high efficiency.
The container ships are powered by a MAN B&W 7S70ME-C10.5 diesel engine and have a maximum cruising speed of 21.6 knots. The ship's fuel efficiency is greatly enhanced by implementing the electronically controlled engine Mark 10.5 and the inverter control of the cooling seawater pump. WAN HAI 323 meets the IMO EEDI Phase 3 level if high voyage speed is needed.
