Evergreen’ New ULCV Are Already Arriving
Evergreen is reinforcing its fleet and two of eleven ULCV (Ultra Large Container Vessel) were already delivered.
We want to always have the most advanced shipbuilding technologies and so we aimed to the new generation of ultra-large containerships. The first to arrive was the Ever Golden, followed by Ever Goods.
New ULCV Characteristics
The ship measurements are about 400 meters in length and about 59 meters wide. The ship design incorporates optimized hull profiles and minimum ballast water requirements to maximize cargo carrying capability. The vessels are designed to have lager depth to strengthen hull structure and navigation safety.
Role New ULCV Play in the Evergreen’ Environmental Compromises
In line with the stringent eco-friendly criteria that Evergreen has imposed on its own operation, the ships are equipped with various environmental protection devices and fully comply with the regulations of international maritime agencies. Ship-to-shore real time data transmission system is introduced to enable operation concerned departments on land to monitor navigation statistics and weather condition, analyze the data and take in time action for speed optimization and route planning at sea. The capabilities can lower fuel consumption and enhance navigation safety. The ship’s new generation G-type main engine is developed with a longer stroke to operate at lower speeds with capability to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
The program will rejuvenate the fleet thereby enhancing the quality of service also we, Green Ibérica, offer to our customers. This will reinforce the line’s competitiveness in the marketplace as get a lot more ecological with all the green technology support the vessels are equipped with.
