Wan Hai Lines holds ship naming ceremony for new 3,000 TEU containership

On 29 March 2023 the naming ceremony of the new Wan Hai Lines container ship Wan Hai 331 was held at CSBC Corporation, Taiwan.

Wan Hai 331 is the first vessel in the series of 3,000TEU containerships built by CSBC Corporation, Taiwan.

The new 3,000TEU series containership measures 209.8m overall, with a beam of 32.8m, a draught of 11.2m and a maximum cruising speed of 20.2 knots.

The vessel adopted new design with full balanced rudder with twisted leading edge and asymmetry rudder bulb, as well as Sea Sword Bow(SSB) which helps reduce water resistance and achieve the requirements for EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) phase III.

By installing Part load tuning and an EGB (Exhaust Gas Bypass) system, Wan Hai Lines aims to save energy and reduce carbon emission by installing the latest environmental protection equipment.

The 3,000TEU series of ships have “SMART(INF)” certification, which uses various monitoring systems and communication equipment to collect data on the voyage and equipment operation.

The ship design also meets the requirements of American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Class for CSC and CLP-V notation.

It is also equipped with a lashing bridge on deck to resist rough weather and strengthen the ship’s stability in order to provide the safest container transportation service.

Wan Hai 331 will be delivered in April 2023 and deployed in Asia trade service.
