Evergreen receives first "L" Type container vessel - Ever Lambent - from Samsung
Evergreen’s first ‘L’-type 8,452teu container ship, the Ever Lambent, has been christened by chairman Chang Yung-fa, at Samsung HI shipyard, SeatradeAsia reports. The vessel, measuring 334mtr in length and 45.8mtr wide, can cruise at a speed of up to 24.5 knots. However, it is specially optimised – according to the Greenship design concept, developed by Dr Chang - for slow steaming, with cutting-edge hull optimisation, electronically-controlled fuel injection, energy-efficient navigational capability, and minimal ballast water requirement, to preserve power to weight ratio. the vessel will be operated by Evergreen Marine (UK) Ltd on the Far East – Europe route from August. The launch marks Evergreen's first new vessel type since delivery of the S-type Ever Salute in January 2008.Upload News
