South Korea’ Samsung Heavy Industries today delivered the 9,200 teu new-L-class vessel EVER LEARNED, the 13th unit in a series of 20 identical sisters ordered in Korea by various related companies within the Evergreen Group between July and September of 2010. The ships are part of a wider series of 30 units, since Evergreen placed follow-up orders for ten identical sister ships at CSBC Kaohsiung in May 2011.

The new EVER LEARNED will phase into the ‘CES’ standalone Far East to Europe service of Evergreen Marine on which CMA CGM, NYK, Coscon, Hanjin and K-Line take slots.

The ship was christened at the beginning of this month at Samsung’s Geoje Island shipyard in a triple ceremony during which sister ships EVER LEGEND (Samsung L-type number 12) and EVER LEGION (number 14) also received their blessings.
