Mission Accomplished

Despite a bracingly cool wind, and some driving droplets of what could only be described as a cross between fog and drizzle, I braved the elements to catch MOL Mission arriving this afternoon as it transited the Narrows en route to Fairview Cove.

One of ten "M" class ships built for MOL it came from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Kobe in 2011. As with all its sisters it measures 78,316 gt and has a capacity of 6724 TEU, including 500 reefers. Its design deadweight tonnage was 79,000 but was revised to 79,491 after delivery.

Mitsui OSK Lines has been subsumed into the new Japanese container line Ocean Network Express along with NYK and K-Line. As the MOL M class ships enter their required drydockings they are being repainted in ONE's magenta hull colour and renamed with ONE replacing MOL in the name.
