OCEAN Network Express' (ONE) new 14,000-TEU ONE Stork, is on her maiden voyage that includes a call at PSA Singapore.

The new vessel was delivered to ONE from Japan Marine United Corporation at Kure shipyard in Hiroshima, reported London's Port Technology.

The newbuild's first voyage consisted of THE Alliance's EC4 service (Asia to the North American coast), calling at the ports of Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Shenzhen-Yantian and Cai Mep, with Singapore being the last port call in Asia.

The vessel will then sail for the United States' east coast, calling at New York via the Suez Canal.

ONE CEO Jeremy Nixon said: "We very much welcome the ONE Stork to Singapore, the city which is where our global head office is now based and a major operational transshipment hub for ONE."

The ONE Stork features an advanced hull form with minimised engine-room space - allowing improved cargo loading efficiency. Additionally, the vessel utilises a duel output system on the main engine, which can switch between high and low outputs for flexible operation and improved fuel consumption rates.
