ONE Trust is the only, of a series of six 20,170 TEU container ships, to be equipped with this device.

The installation was carried out at the Quindao Beihai Shipyard in China and this equipment should improve aerodynamics of the container ship, while reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
