Tenth & Final S-Series Ship Delivered

Monday, September 10, 2007
Ever Salute, the last of ten 7024TEU S-series vessels being built for Evergreen in Japan, was launched on September 8 at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Kobe shipyard. The vessel was named by S S Lin (Lin Sun-san), First Vice Group Chairman of the Evergreen Group, while the ceremonial rope cutting, sending the ship down the slipway, was performed by Mrs Fusae Katsumata, the wife of Mr Nobuo Katsumata, President and CEO of the Marubeni Corporation.

Due for delivery in January 2008, Ever Salute is scheduled to join one of Evergreen Line’s transpacific services. The first eight vessels are now operating on the company’s new China Europe Shuttle (CES) that offers a fast link between Asia and North Europe, while the ninth vessel, Ever Safety, is scheduled for delivery next month (October) and will also enter the transpacific trade.

The S-series ships have won global recognition for their advanced design features, intended to minimize their impact on the environment during normal operations and in the unlikely event of any accident.
