Evergreen Goup say that their newbuild 'Ever Lissome', the fifth of its L-type containerships to be built by CSBC Corporation in Taiwan, has been named in a recent shipyard ceremony.

The ceremony took place at China Shipbuilding Company's Kaohsiung shipyard and was officiated by Raymond Lin, Evergreen Group's Vice Group Chairman. The official rope-cutting of the new 8,508 TEU vessel was performed by Mrs. Aphinya Changariyavong, the wife of EvergreenShipping Agency (Thailand).

Chairman Mr. Nivat Changariyavong."Global economic outlook is gradually improving," said Mr. Lin, speaking at the ceremony. "According to IMF's latest World Economic Outlook, the world output is expected to grow by 3.6% in 2014. In addition, Clarksons expects global box trade to increase by 6% this year. In view of this growth momentum, Evergreen Line has been conducting a fleet renewal program not only to better serve the expected trade recovery, but also to safeguard the marine environment with eco-friendly ships."
 
Owned by Evergreen Marine (UK) Ltd., Ever Lissome is 334.8 meters in length, 45.8 meters wide, with 948 reefer plugs. The L-class containership is fitted with alternative marine power, ballast water treatment system, electronic-controlled fuel-injection engine that supports slow steaming and many other eco-friendly features.

Evergreen add that after her delivery on May 15th, the newbuilding will join the company's Asia - US East Coast (via Suez Canal) route, replacing an older vessel.
