Hull assembly of AtoB@C Shipping's first electric hybrid vessel begins

The hull assembly of AtoB@C Shipping's first electric hybrid coaster began today at Chowgule Shipyard with the traditional keel laying ceremony. Production of the vessel began in the mid-March with a steel cutting, and construction now continues with hull assembly. Delivery of the vessel is expected in the third quarter of 2023.

“We are very pleased that the construction of the vessel is proceeding according to plan with good cooperation from the shipyard. We are excited to follow the building process and eventually receive a vessel which will satisfy our clients’ needs”, says Frida Rowland, Business Unit 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.
