71% of new boxships exceed post-2025 EEDI requirements

Almost three-quarters of all new container ships, which emit around a quarter of global ship CO2 emissions, already comply with the post-2025 requirements of the IMO’s Energy Efficiency Design Index, according to a new study issued by Transport and Environment. 

OOCL names second mega energy-efficient containership

On August 22, OOCL celebrated the christening of a 21,413 TEU newbuilding, constructed by SHI, designed with many green features that can help meet future environmental requirements. Named as OOCL Germany, the mega containership is the second of the six 21.000 TEU class vessels on order at the shipyard.

IMO “fails to impress” with outline of shipping climate plan
