A naming ceremony was held for the Evergreen Group’s newest containership, Ever Lovely, the ninth of its L-type vessels to be built by CSBC Corporation in Taiwan and the penultimate vessel in a series of 30 ships.
 
The ceremony took place at CSBC's Kaohsiung shipyard and was officiated by Bronson Hsieh, Evergreen's  Second Vice Group Chairman. The official rope-cutting of the new vessel was performed by Anna U. Obermeier, the wife of Pier Luigi Maneschi, Chairman of Evergreen Shipping Agency (Italy) S.p.A.
 
Ever Lovely is owned by Evergreen Marine (Singapore) Pte Ltd. The 8,508 TEU ship is 334.8 meters in length, 45.8 meters wide, and has a draft of 14.2 meters. In common with its L-type sister ships, it can cruise at speeds up to 24.5 knots. With delivery immediately after the event, the vessel joins Evergreen Line's Far East - South America route and replaces an older unit on the trade.   
 
As a refinement to the original eco-friendly design, the L-type vessels built by CSBC this year are fitted with a new energy-saving bow, enabling the ships to further enhance fuel-efficiency and reduce emissions. Evergreen is conducting a bow refitting program that will see 15 of its L-type ships will be equipped with the improved feature by the end of this year.
