The engineering of OOCL Hong Kong is reliable and highly efficient, using main dual-fuel aggregate with high power and low consumption. The main engine is Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C, which has maximum output power of 107,400 hp. The main engine is highly efficient and environmental, having low CO2 and NOx emissions. The fuel injection system distributes the marine diesel oil into the cylinders under high pressure and having higher temperature, which improves the efficiency of the engine and improves the dynamics characteristics, as well as green gas emissions. the engineering on board of OOCL Hong Kong is from the latest generation, compliant with IMO Tier II and Tier III, as well as low sulfur emissions standards.

OOCL Hong Kong will be serving the Asia-Europe trade lane on the LL1 service with stops in Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Yantian, and Singapore, and via Suez Canal to Felixstowe, Rotterdam, Gdansk, and Wilhelmshaven. The vessel has IMO number 9776171, MMSI 477333500 and call sign VRQL9.
