ONE orders 12 13,000 TEU methanol dual-fuel container ships

Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) has signed Ship Building Contracts with Jiangnan Shipyard and Yangzijiang Shipbuilding for a total construction of twelve 13,000 TEU methanol dual-fuel container ships.

Each shipyard will build six vessels; all are scheduled to be delivered from 2027. This significant milestone represents ONE’s inaugural fleet of methanol-dual fuel vessels and plays a key role in reaching ONE’s sustainable goals as part of the Green Strategy.

In the current maritime and sustainability landscape, methanol is anticipated to hold significant potential for emission reduction. Moreover, these vessels will include technologies such as optimized hull form, waste heat recovery systems and bow windshield.

Selected vessels will also be equipped with an air lubrication system and shaft generator to help with exploring potential enhancements in fuel efficiency and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

ONE Green Strategy is targeting net-zero GHG emissions, encompassing Scope 2 and 3, by 2050. To achieve the target, transition from conventional fuel to alternative fuels is defined as ONE’s key pillar of Green initiatives.
