It’s the ship’s first voyage since it was delivered on Jan. 15 this year. The management from the Piraeus Container Terminal presented a souvenir to the captain of Pisces, wishing the future journey of this ocean-going ship to be safe and smooth.

Furthermore, the ship is equipped with intelligent energy efficiency management system aimed at monitoring and management of consumption of fuel, energy, and ship speed optimization. The system allows for one-man bridge operation, securing COSCO Shipping Pisces a spot in the new generation of “smart ships”.
