Last of Evergreen’s “green” S-types launched

Last of Evergreen’s “green” S-types launched

Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries on Saturday in Kobe launched the last in a series of 10 “green” 7,024-TEU S-type boxships for Taiwan’s Evergreen Group.


Ever Salute



   The Ever Salute is due to be delivered to Evergreen Line in January for service in the transpacific trade. The first eight in the series are deployed on the weekly China Europe Shuttle (CES), while the ninth vessel, Ever Safety, is scheduled for delivery in October and is destined for the transpacific market.

   The environmentally advanced S-types go beyond the requirements of new and soon-to-be introduced international green standards by incorporating design features such as double-skinned hulls and fuel oil tanks located in protected locations within the transverse bulkhead spaces, thus minimizing the risk of oil pollution.

   A high capacity oily water separator enables the oil content of waste water to be reduced to just 15 parts per million (ppm) while much larger separated bilge oil and bilge holding tanks provide more storage capacity, allowing the vessels to avoid any discharge when sailing in sensitive areas and to maximize the amount of waste that can be held for ultimate disposal in specialized shore facilities.

   Similar arrangements have been made for handling sewage, grey water and cargo hold bilges when the vessels are in port or close to shore, while the ships also have the ability to shut down all shipboard generators and switch to shore-based electricity supplies while in port, known as “cold-ironing.”

   The 78,200 dwt vessels have an overall length of 300 meters (984 feet) and width of 42.8 meters (140 feet) enabling them to carry containers 17 rows across on deck and 15 rows across below deck. They all have 839 reefer plugs for carriage of temperature-controlled containers.
