According to the Port of New York and New Jersey's statement, One Apus is the first vessel to employ dual-rating system technology in its main diesel engine. The technology provides flexibility to the vessel's operations and boosts fuel efficiency to enable GHG reduction.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has launched the Clean Vessel Incentive Program which has as a priority goal the provision of financial incentives, encouraging operators, charters, and agents to make engine, fuel, and technology enhancements. ONE APUS, and the entire ONE shipping line, participate in this voluntary program.
In addition, One Apus' presence at the port, strengthens its connection with Asia and further contributes to a pattern of steadily rising cargo volume—cargo volume has risen every month at the Port of New York and New Jersey in 2019.
One Apus is deployed on the East Coast 4 (EC4) service (Asia to US East Coast), under the Transport High Efficiency Alliance (THEA), making eastbound calls at Kaohsiung, Hong Kong, Yantian, Cai Mep, Singapore, New York, Norfolk, Savannah, Charleston and westbound stops at New York, Singapore, and Kaohsiung.
The ship is the second delivery for ONE this year, and the sixth in a series of seven newly built 14,000-TEU magenta containerships.
