The newest member in OOCL’s fleet was named “OOCL Valencia” in the ceremony held at Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (NACKS) shipyard today. She is the seventh eco-friendly 24,188 TEU vessel in a series of twelve ordered by OOCL and also the first OOCL new vessel in 2024 that will serve OOCL’s Asia-Europe LL1 service.

OOCL was honored to have Ms. YING Xiuzhen, Director and Vice President of China-Base Ningbo Group Co., Ltd. to name the vessel as “OOCL Valencia” and give her blessings.

Ms. YU Tao, Director and Member of Executive Committee of OOCL, said at the ceremony: “Last year, OOCL received a total of six new container vessels and thus rapidly optimized the fleet structure of both OOCL and the group. In the new year, in addition to the OOCL Valencia, more high-quality and high-performance ships will sail from here. OOCL and NACKS will continue to work for win-win cooperation, grow together, and strive to create value for customers and society. Back by the spirit of ‘take it personally’, OOCL continues to serve as the vital link to global trade, actively respond to the future challenges, and strive to providing customers with better and greener end-to-end integrated logistics and supply chain solutions, which will contribute to the construction of a world-leading shipping technology enterprise for the group.”
