OOCL christens the last in latest series of ‘G-Class’ containerships

OOCL has announced that the sixth and last in latest series of 21,413 TEU containerships was christened at a ceremony held at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard on Geoje island today.

OOCL's partnership with SHI began in 1995 when we built the first 4,960 TEU containership, named OOCL Hong Kong, at the shipyard. In the following years, we collaborated on more than fifty newbuilding projects, all of which were very successful as each vessel was constructed at the highest quality. Along the way, we also made history together by building the OOCL Shenzhen (at 8,063 TEU) in 2003 and the OOCL Hong Kong (at 21,413 TEU) last year that broke record titles as the world’s largest containership by carrying capacity.

The OOCL Indonesia will be serving the Asia-Europe trade lane on the LL1 service and her port rotation is: Shanghai / Ningbo / Xiamen / Yantian / Singapore / via Suez Canal / Felixstowe / Rotterdam / Gdansk / Wilhelmshaven / Felixstowe / via Suez Canal / Singapore / Yantian / Shanghai in a 77-day round trip.
 
“Orient Overseas Container Line" and “OOCL" are trade names for transportation provided separately by: Orient Overseas Container Line Limited (“OOCLL") and OOCL (Europe) Limited respectively and both are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Orient Overseas (International) Limited, a public company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
