Orient Overseas Container Line Ltd. (OOCL) hosted the naming ceremony of a brand-new 24,188TEU vessel container at the Dalian COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co Ltd. (DACKS) shipyard on 30 May 2023.

The containership was named as OOCL Piraeus, and becomes the first of six 24,188TEU vessels ordered by OOCL and delivered by DACKS.

OOCL placed an order for a total of 12 24,188TEU container vessels in 2020. Of this set, OOCL Piraeus is the second to be delivered following the delivery of the OOCL Spain earlier in the year.

Vessels in this series incorporate the latest technology, and are equipped with advanced smart systems and upgraded green design, such as low resistance lines design and an energy-saving bulbous bow.

This series of green and smart mega vessels will provide OOCL with the advantages of economies of scale, energy efficiency and long-term navigational safety.

OOCL Piraeus will join OOCL’s Asia-Europe service LL3 from June.

Her port rotation is: Shanghai / Xiamen / Nansha / Hong Kong / Yantian / Cai Mep / Singapore / Piraeus / Hamburg / Rotterdam / Zeebrugge / Valencia / Piraeus / Abu Dhabi / Singapore / Shanghai in a 84-day round trip.
