The 8,452 teu L-class vessel is 334 metres in length, 45.8 m wide, with 942 reefer plugs and a draft of 14.2 m. The vessel is fitted with alternative marine power, ballast water treatment system, electronic-controlled fuel-injection engine that supports slow steaming and many more eco-friendly designs.

Evergreen Group commenced a new shipbuilding fleet rejuvenation project in 2010, ordering 20 L-type vessels from Samsung Heavy Industries. In 2011, the company placed an order for another 10 vessels of the same specifications with Taiwan Shipbuilding Corp. Seven of the 30 new buildings have been delivered, with eleven more scheduled to be delivered by the end of this year.
