Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp. (Yang Ming) celebrated the naming of its 2,800 TEU class full container vessel, YM Continuity with a virtual naming ceremony. Yang Ming Chairman Cheng Cheng-Mount and CSBC Corporation Chairman Cheng Wen-Lon, located respectively at Yang Ming’s headquarters in Keelung and CSBC Corporation’s administration building in Kaohsiung, jointly officiated the ceremony.
Mrs. Chen Shu-Huei, a wife of the President of National Ocean Taiwan University, Hsu Tai-Wen, had the honor to officially name the ship during the ceremony and wish the ship and its crew the best of luck on their future voyages.

The new building adopts the Sea Sword Bow design to significantly save energy and optimize hydrodynamic performances. The application of its electronic controlled fuel injection engine with a low-load tuning Exhaust Gas Bypass (EGB) fuel control system will greatly enhance the new ship’s energy efficiency.
The installation of scrubbers will help Yang Ming to fulfill its promise to reduce emissions of NOx and SOx. Furthermore, YM Continuity is certified with ABS’s Smart INF and Smart SHM notations and CR Classification Society‘s “Smartship H, Et, I” notations. The recognitions denote that the vessels are equipped with smart information infrastructure of big data acquisition and cloud transmission, which allow ship structure endurance monitoring and future structural health awareness through ABS’s customized analysis program to ensure sailing safety.
