A naming ceremony was held Monday at Japan Marine United Corporation's (JMU) Kure shipyard for the first newly built containership painted in Ocean Network Express' (ONE) corporate color.

The new magenta box ship, named ONE Stork, is the 10th of 15 new 14,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) vessels ordered by Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK). It will be chartered by Singapore-based ONE, which began operations on April 1 by integrating the container businesses of Japanese ocean carriers Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and NYK.

The ONE fleet already includes existing vessels that have been painted the corporate color, but the newest vessel named on Monday and delivered on Tuesday is its first magenta newbuild.

The 364-meter, 145,251-gross-ton ONE Stork will sail under the Japanese flag and service a route connecting Asia to the east coast of North America through the Suez Canal.

All ships in the newbuild series have been named after birds. Previously delivered are NYK Blue Jay, NYK Ibis, NYK Eagle, NYK Crane, NYK Hawk, NYK Falcon, NYK Swan, NYK Owl and NYK Wren.

Like its sister ships, ONE Stork's main engine is equipped with a dual rating system that allows the vessel to realize optimal fuel consumption, NYK said. Optimization of fuel consumption when slow-steaming makes it possible to meet the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) requirements. Moreover, the ship's hull form allows for improved cargo-loading efficiency.

NYK said the new ship will be subject to research utilizing big data for the prevention of vessel machinery plant trouble, under the support of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), NYK, JMU, MTI Co. Ltd., and other marine manufacturers. The joint research team will collect and analyze voyage data in an effort to improve safety and economic efficiency.
