Yang Ming Marine Transport announced it has received its eighth 2,800-twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) container vessel, which will be deployed next month on the carrier’s intra-Asia service.

YM Constancy was christened on March 19 in a naming ceremony at CSBC’s Kaohsiung shipyard. It is the eighth in a series of ten 2,800-TEU full container vessels built at CSBC shipyard.

The newbuild has a nominal capacity of 2,940 TEUs and is equipped with 353 plugs for reefer containers. With a length of 209.75 meters, a width of 32.8 meters and a draft of 11.2 meters, YM Constancy is designed to cruise at a speed up to 21 knots.

The application of its electronic controlled fuel injection engine with low-load tuning Exhaust Gas Bypass fuel control system will greatly enhance the new ship’s energy efficiency, said the Taiwanese shipping line in a release.

Furthermore, the installation of scrubbers will help Yang Ming reduce emissions of NOx and SOx, ensure environmental sustainability, and obtain operational efficiency.

To strengthen its overall competitiveness and improve operational cost, Yang Ming has accelerated its vessel optimization plan. Since 2020, it has taken delivery of a total of seven 2,800-TEU self-owned vessels and four 11,000-TEU chartered-in vessels.

The remaining two 2,800-TEU self-owned vessels and ten 11,000 TEU chartered-in newbuildings will be delivered in the near future.

YM Constancy will be deployed on Yang Ming’s intra-Asia service, JTS, from April 1.

The port rotation of JTS is Nagoya – Tokyo – Chiba – Yokohama – Keelung – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong – Shekou – Port Klang – Singapore – Manila South Port – Kaohsiung – Hong Kong – Shekou – Xiamen – Nagoya.
