Wan Hai Lines Ltd. held ship naming ceremony for WAN HAI A09 accompanied by a charity donation at Samsung Heavy Industries Geoje shipyard. WAN HAI A09 is the third vessel in the series of 13,100 teu containerships built by Samsung Heavy Industries Geoje shipyard. Ms. Teresa Cheung, Director and Chief Executive Officer of America Chung Nam, named the vessel during the ceremony.
The 13,100 teu series is designed with a length overall of 335 meters, a breadth of 51 meters, a draft of 16 meters and a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots. The containership takes energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly aspects into account, equipped with full balanced twisted bulb rudders, pre-swirl fin and meets the highest level of requirement for EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) for phase III in advance. Besides, all the ships delivered are certified with “Smart Ship” notations. WAN HAI A09 will be delivered in late February, 2023 and deployed in Asia to North America service.
These new vessels are part of Wan Hai Lines efforts to ensure its continuous pursuit of fleet upgrade in order to provide the best quality service to customers. In addition to naming the newbuilding, Wan Hai Lines also made a donation of necessities to Aikwangwon/Dandelion House, the charity that provide residential care to disabled people. We hope this small token could benefit the local community. The charity donation represents part of Wan Hai Lines motto, “We carry, we care.”, as the company is committed to fulfill its corporate social responsibility, providing quality service to customers and bringing love to the society.
