AtoB@C Shipping, subsidiary of ESL Shipping, orders six highly efficient 5,350 dwt hybrid vessels
21. September 2021
The greenhouse gas emissions, including CO2, per cargo unit transported will decrease by almost 50% compared to the existing ships, making the vessels the most efficient in the world in their class. The vessels’ battery packs, shore-side electricity solution and electric hybrid use enable completely emission-free and noise-free port calls. Ships can also arrive and leave the port with electric power only.
The new vessels will be built at Chowgule and Company Private Limited shipyard in India and will be delivered starting from the third quarter of 2023. The yard is part of the family-owned Chowgule Group founded in 1916 and has long experience in building ships of similar size for several European clients.
The design work of the ships and comprehensive model tests have been carried out together with the Dutch SMB Naval Architects. The company has been closely involved in the design of the vessels and has tailored the vessels to customer needs. Special attention has been paid to the energy efficiency and arrangements of cargo spaces.
“We are very pleased to be able to invest in new, energy-efficient vessels. Together with the shipbuilder Chowgule and AtoB@C Shipping, we will make shipping even more environmentally friendly,” said Mikki Koskinen, Managing Director of ESL Shipping and Chairman of the Board of AtoB@C Shipping.
“With this order we are able to offer our customers more environmentally friendly transports and respond to the growing demand. This order will also secure us eco-friendly and modern capacity in the coming years”, says Frida Rowland, Business Unit Director of AtoB@C Shipping.”
