News 195 : Blooming of Camellia - Naming and Delivery of 1,103TEU container carrier Sunny Camellia

2 weeks after the "mock" ceremonies, the real naming and delivery ceremonies for the 1,103TEU container carrier took place on March 27, 2014. The ship, or S518 as we called her, was the youngest of 2 ship-series ordered by TVL Marine (HK) Co., Limited.

For Kyokuyo's last big event for the fiscal year 2014 (that ended on March 31), gathered more than 30 guests, including among others Mr. Lee Chien-Fa, Chairman of the owner, and his wife Mrs. Yu Shu-Chuan, and Mr. Luan Wen-Chin, Vice Chairman and his wife Mrs. Lee Kuei-Chu. Just like the case of the sister ship m.v. Sunny Calla, gentlemen from the Korean operator also participated the event.

SPRING HOLIDAYS

Calendar
It was a warm and peaceful spring day, after a chilly night. Onboard the vessel, under the flags of Taiwan, Korea and Japan flying together, Mrs. Lee Kuei-Chu was the star of the day. The Vice Chairman's wife played 2 roles : she first gave the name of "Sunny Camellia" to the ship and then axed the tethering rope as sponsor. Amidst the loud applause, the brand new container carrier was delivered to the owner.

As you may guess, the luncheon reception was held at the banquet room offering a splendid view over Kanmon Channel. All the participants gave a big cheer through wide windows when Sunny Camellia appeared on the scene !
