The sidelight has to be placed where it can be viewed from "right ahead." This would mean that you would place it where the bow starts to bend in toward the stem. This is why they are often mounted on the bridge wings. They usually have the visibility both forward and abaft the beam that is required by the rules.
It also has to be mounted where it can be accessed for bulb changes, but with the advent of LEDs, this is less important.
Looking at the drawing, where would you personally mount it?

I doubt you're going to get 30+ knots of speed out of that hull no matter how much power you install. The Maersk B class could do 30+ knots when they were new, but they had 60MW installed power, were 3/4th the length, a little more than half the beam and carried about 5000 TEU to do so.
Once you subtract the power needed for reefer containers you're left with roughly as much power as other current ULCVs, so speed should be similar.
Thanks for the heads-up. I wasn't sure because ULCVs are of course not the same as carriers and vice-versa. Could there be any sort of speed advantage at all, at least in terms of the overall journey?
