According to the company’s statement, the vessel adopted a new design with full balanced rudder with twisted leading edge and asymmetry rudder bulb, as well as Sea Sword Bow(SSB) which helps reduce water resistance on ship and achieve the highest level of requirement for EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) phase III in advance.
The ship design meets the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) Class standards for CSC and CLP-V notation. Additionally, it is also equipped with lashing bridge on deck to resist rough weather and strengthen the ship’s stability in order to provide the safest container transportation service.
In terms of safety, the 3,000 TEU boxship has received “SMART(INF)” accreditation, which employs a variety of tracking systems and communication devices to gather data on the journey and machinery operation.
