Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) announced the addition of a new 24,000 TEU mega vessel to its fleet.
The newest member of OOCL’s fleet was named OOCL Valencia at the shipyard of Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS). This box ship is the seventh environmentally friendly 24,188 TEU vessel in a series of twelve ordered by OOCL, as well as the first new OOCL vessel in 2024 to run OOCL’s Asia-Europe LL1 service.
YING Xiuzhen, director and vice president of China-Base Ningbo Group, was honoured to name the vessel OOCL Valencia.
“Last year, OOCL received a total of six new container vessels and thus rapidly optimized the fleet structure of both OOCL and the group. In the new year, in addition to the OOCL Valencia, more high-quality and high-performance ships will sail from here. OOCL and NACKS will continue to work for win-win cooperation, grow together, and strive to create value for customers and society,” stated YU Tao, director and member of the executive committee of OOCL.
