Wan Hai Lines names eco-friendly 3,055 TEU containership trio

Taiwanese shipping company Wan Hai Lines held a naming ceremony on 26 March for three new eco-friendly 3,055 TEU containerships built by Japan Marine United Corporation TSU Shipyard.

The ceremony took place at the shipbuilder’s yard. Wan Hai Lines ordered a third batch of 3,055 TEU series vessels from Japan Marine United Corporation.

This batch totals 12 vessels. The newly-named ships Wan Hai 370, Wan Hai 371 and Wan Hai 373 are the sixth, seventh, and ninth vessels in this series of 3,055 TEU boxships.

The vessel series uses low sulfur fuel oil (LSFO) and is equipped with new energy-saving equipment, to take energy efficiency and environment-friendly aspects into account.

The ships are also certified with “Smart Ship” notations. These new smart vessels are part of Wan Hai’s efforts to pursue fleet upgrading and enhance its commitment to eco-friendly shipping services.

In January, Wan Hai held a naming ceremony for a new eco-friendly 13,000 TEU containership at Samsung Heavy Industries Geoje shipyard.
