YM Credential joins Yang Ming’s THX service

Taiwanese operator Yang Ming Marine Transport has named the third vessel in a series of 10 highly efficient vessels following a ceremony at the CSBC shipyard in Kaohsiung on 31 July.

Yang Ming chairman, Bronson Hsieh, presided over the ceremony for the vessel, which has a nominal capacity of 2,940TEU.

The design of this series of vessels will comply with more stringent environmental regulations, as the ships will be equipped with an advanced SOx Scrubber system; and the design has adopted the energy-saving Sea Sword Bow technology to offer greater operational efficiency and eco-friendly advantages, said the liner company.

Additionally, the company said, “YM Credential is equipped with an integrated computer-based system for the controlling and monitoring of the automated installations of periodically unattended machinery spaces. Its monitoring devices also allow reduced scope of tail shaft survey.”

The computer and tail shaft designs are recognised by class society Bureau Veritas which has awarded the vessel series with the Smart Ship notation. “YM Credential will be the first vessel to receive Bureau Veritas (BV) SMARTSHIP (MACHINERY 1) notation.”

The YM Credential will be deployed on Yang Ming’s intra-Asia service THX from 7 August which has a port rotation of Cat Lai – Kaohsiung – Keelung – Hong Kong – Cat Lai – Kaohsiung – Taichung – Cat Lai.

The company added, “Among the series of ten newbuildings, YM Celebrity and YM Continent were deployed on Yang Ming’s JTS service on 27 May and 4 June respectively. The remaining seven vessels are currently under construction and expected to join Yang Ming’s fleet by the second quarter of 2021.”

According to Yang Ming’s analysis of the operational performance of YM Celebrity and YM Continent the ships will reduce fuel consumption by about 33% in comparison with the previous vessels.”
