After an intensive period of finalising the details of design, production started today on the first of six ice-classed electric hybrid vessels at Chowgule Shipyard in Goa, India. The steel cutting ceremony is an important milestone in the shipbuilding process, as it marks the start of the construction of the vessel. The first vessel of the series is expected to be delivered to AtoB@C Shipping during in the third quarter of 2023.
“It is fascinating to witness how the first vessel is starting to take shape and grows from a small piece of steel into a complete vessel ready to carry cargo across the seas”, says Janne Eklöf, Technical Director of AtoB@C Shipping.
AtoB@C Shipping announced the order of six new, highly energy-efficient 5,350 dwt general cargo vessels in September 2021. These new 1A ice class vessels are market leaders in terms of cargo capacity, technology and innovation. AtoB@C Shipping has been closely involved in the design of the vessels and has tailored the vessels to customer needs. The total investment value of the six ships is approximately 70 million euros. AtoB@C Shipping has the option to expand the order with several ships.
