ONE plan to build 10 Neo-Panamax Container Ship

Shipping Network on March 21, according to foreign media reports, Japan Ocean Network (ONE) will build 10 Neo-Panamax container ships, with a total value expected to exceed 1.6 billion US dollars. Japan’s Imabari Shipbuilding and South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries each received orders for five ships.

In February this year, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Daewoo Shipbuilding, Imabari Shipbuilding, and China Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding and Jiangnan Shipbuilding were shortlisted for the ONE 13,000 TEU newbuilding project. At present, ONE has signed letters of intent with shipyards in Japan and South Korea.

It is worth mentioning that these ships will use traditional fuels and be equipped with desulfurization towers. However, the ability to upgrade to LNG dual-fuel power will also be reserved.

ONE chose traditional fuels because the company plans to launch ships in South America, where LNG bunkering infrastructure is relatively underdeveloped.

Given the current state of the shipbuilding market, each vessel is expected to cost $160 million, according to people familiar with the matter.

In addition, according to the shipping network, ONE has also leased 10 7,000TEU container ships from Seaspan. The ships are currently being built at Waigaoqiao Shipyard and will be delivered in 2024.

According to the latest data from Alphaliner, as of March 21, ONE operated a total of 208 ships with a total capacity of 1.528 million TEU.

In addition to building new ships, ONE recently announced that it will add 6,500 refrigerated containers to meet the growing demand for refrigerated transportation trade.
