TAIWAN's TS Line proudly announced the naming of its 1,800 TEU containership TS Bangkok, at a christening ceremony held at the CSBC Corporation, Taiwan (CSBC) shipyard in Keelung on July 21. The ceremony was jointly held by Mr Wen-Lon Cheng, chairman of CSBC and Mr T S Chen, chairman of TS Lines. Wife of Mega International Commercial Bank's president Mr Li-Yen Yang also participated in the ceremony as the sponsor.

Mr Cheng addressed the importance of the series of 1,800-TEUers for TS Line. "Although the operating environment for ocean freight undergoes recession for several years, ship owners become increasingly conservative in placing new orders. With our consistent support for the local industry and our trust to the well established reputation for CSBC, we have chosen CSBC over other overseas shipbuilders to build our 1,800 TEU containerships."

"We are very grateful of TS Line's support during the storm," said Mr Cheng.

"Apart from the four 1,800-TEUers, we will continue to place new orders at CSBC's Keelung shipyard," said Mr Chen.

The ship has a length of 172 metres and a width of 27.5 metres, it was the first containership equipped with CSBC's Sea-Sword Bow (SSB) technology. Compared to the traditional bow design, the SSB design is more efficient in energy saving and carbon reduction.
