Seaspan welcomes another 15K TEU boxship, ONE Focus
The fifth 15,000 TEU containership ONE Focus, built by Chinese shipbuilder Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, has joined Seaspan’s fleet.
As informed, the vessel was built by Yangzijiang Shipbuilding’s New Yangzi Shipbuilding division.
ONE Focus has a total length of 366 meters, a molded width of 51 meters, a molded depth of 30.2 meters, a design draft of 14.5 meters, and a structural draft of 16.0 meters.
The containership is the fifth in a series of seven 15,000TEU series ships built by Yangzijiang Shipbuilding for the Canadian shipowner.
Construction started back in November 2022. The ship is classed by classification society ABS. It was delivered on January 13.
The strong demand for clean energy vessels has been a significant driver of Yangzijiang’s growth. Recently, the shipbuilder bagged a contract for the construction of 13,000 TEU containerships for Singapore-based shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE). Chinese shipbuilder Jiangnan Shipyard will also build some of the vessels. They are slated for delivery in 2026 and 2027.
Among Yangzijiang’s clients is Danish container shipping heavyweight A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk), which placed an order for six mid-sized container vessels with the yard in June last year.
The six 9,000 TEU vessels will all have dual-fuel engines able to operate on green methanol and fuel oil and are slated for delivery in 2026 and 2027.
