On 14th April the Evergreen Group held the naming ceremony for the 99,946gt/8,508 TEU capacity Ever Lyric, the eighth of its Ltype vessels built by CSBC Corporation in Taiwan. The ceremony took place at CSBC’s Kaohsiung shipyard and was officiated by Raymond Lin, Evergreen Group’s Vice Group Chairman. The official rope-cutting at the ceremony was performed by Jarijanti Buana, the wife of the Chairman of Evergreen Shipping Agency Indonesia. The Ever Lyric is 334.8m in length, 45.8m wide, with a draft of 14.2m. The vessel can cruise at a speed up to 24.5 knots. As a refinement to the original eco-friendly design, the newbuild is fitted with a brand new energy-saving bow. This improvement enables the ship to further enhance the fuel-efficiency and reduce emissions. After delivery on 15th April the vessel joined Evergreen Line’s Far East- Red Sea Service (FRS), replacing an older ship. The remaining two newbuildings are being built by CSBC and will be delivered by the third quarter of 2015.
