Named Century Highway Green, the vessel has a length of 199.98 metres, a beam of 37.2 metres, and capacity for 7,080 CEUs. One MAN B&W 8S50ME-C GI 9,380kW dual-fuel main engine that can also operate on LNG delivers a service speed of just under 20 knots.

The newbuild is the first LNG-powered vessel to be acquired by K Line.
