She is the seventh eco-friendly 24,188TEU vessel in a series of 12 ordered by OOCL and also the first OOCL new vessel in 2024 that will serve OOCL’s Asia-Europe LL1 service.
Ms Ying Xiuzhen, Director and Vice President of China-Base Ningbo Group Co, Ltd, named the vessel OOCL Valencia and gave her blessings. Ms Yu Tao, Director and Member of Executive Committee of OOCL, said at the ceremony:
“Last year, OOCL received a total of six new container vessels and thus rapidly optimised the fleet structure of both OOCL and the group. In the new year, in addition to OOCL Valencia, more high-quality and high-performance ships will sail from here.”
