Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. (Yang Ming) has added one new 11,000 TEU container vessel, ‘YM Trillion’, says a press release on their website.

Vessel chartered

The vessel is chartered from Shoei Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. and built by Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. YM Trillion was named and delivered to Yang Ming at a ceremony held at Imabari Marugame Shipyard today (21st).

Ceremonial cord-cutting

Yang Ming’s attendees joined the event remotely at their Taipei office.

Mr. David Yen, Chairman of T3EX Global Holdings Corp. was invited to officially name the vessel, and Ms. Alice Yen, daughter of Chairman of T3EX Global Holdings Corp had the honor to perform the ceremonial cord-cutting to wish the ship and its crew the best of luck on their future voyages.

Long-term agreements

To further strengthen Yang Ming’s mid- to long-term operational efficiency, the Company ordered a total of fourteen 11,000 TEU newbuildings through long-term charter agreements with ship owners. With the delivery of YM Trillion, all fourteen 11,000 TEU ships have joined Yang Ming’s fleet.

These newbuildings will lower the average age of Yang Ming’s global fleet and enhance vessel deployment.

Eco-friendly ships

With environmental features, these eco-friendly ships will accelerate fleet optimization, reduce unit cost and offer greater transportation service.

Vessels has nominal capacity

This series of vessels has a nominal capacity of 11,860 TEU and is equipped with 1,000 plugs for reefer containers.

With a length of 333.9 meters, a width of 48.4 meters, a draft of 16 meters, these vessels are designed to cruise at a speed up to 23 knots.

The containerships incorporate various environmental features including scrubbers, Water Ballast Treatment Plant and Alternative Marine Power system.

Navigational visibility

This type of vessels adopts the twin-island design to increase loading capacity and navigational visibility to ensure more efficiency and safety.

The ship hull form optimization will further increase energy saving and reduce overall emissions.

Vessel deployment

In addition, the ships are designed with shorter length and beam, which makes them easier to maneuver during berthing or departure.

The optimal dimensions can enable these ships to call at major ports worldwide and pass through the new Panama Canal with no restriction, and facilitate greater flexibility in vessel deployment.

Global fleet and service network

YM Trillion has been deployed on Yang Ming’s Trans-Pacific service PN3, which will meet customer needs, and maximize capacity utilization.

It is expected that the vessel will further strengthen the competitiveness of Yang Ming’s global fleet and service network.

The port rotation of PN3 is Hong Kong – Yantian – Shanghai – Pusan – Vancouver – Tacoma – Pusan – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong.
