Navis has announced that it will supply its MACS3 loading computers for new tonnage ordered by Yang Ming and ship owner and ship managers China Navigation and Eastern Pacific.


The Yang Ming vesels are 10 x 2,800 TEU newbuilds under construction at Taiwan-based CSBC Corporation shipyard, and scheduled for delivery between January 2020 and February 2021. The MACS3 computers for these vessels will be equipped with the integrated SEALASH module by Navis. “In addition to the basic container vessel module, MACS3, the industry standard for container vessels, has been ordered with additional integrated modules including Dangerous Goods (DG), SEALASH and TROP, emphasizing the segregation and stowage of dangerous goods in compliance with IMDG code, updates of latest cargo securing regulations and trim optimization,” Navis stated.


“MACS3 is currently the only loading computer on the market covering cargo-securing regulations from all major classification societies including American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), DNV GL and China Corporation Register Taiwan and Bureau Veritas (BV). Using the class-approved lashing engine integrated in MACS3 will enable Yang Ming to increase safety and container intake as well as cargo efficiency.,” said Navis.


Eight of the 20 vessels are 4 x 2,350 TEU and 4 x 2,750 TEU ships currently being built at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard, China. These will be owned by Singapore-based China Navigation, the deep-sea shipowner and operating unit of Swire Group. The MACS3 loading computers for these vessels will include the trim optimization module TROP.


The final two vessels are 2 x 15,100 TEU ships to be owned by Singapore-based ship manager Eastern Pacific Shipping, currently under construction at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industry, South Korea. The MACS3 computers for these vessels will also include the integrated lashing module SEALASH approved by Lloyd’s Register according to latest BoxMax class notation.


“In times of increasing cargo incidents on board container vessels, rising fuel prices and growing call for cutting greenhouse gas emissions ship operators look for tools to ensure not only compliance with safety regulations,” said Selke Eichler, Director of Global Customer Support at Navis. “Innovative tools should offer recommendations for the crews to optimize safety, utilization and fuel consumption – ideally all integrated from one source. We are proud that container vessel operators trust in the industry standard MACS3.”
