Ecomar delivered to AtoB@C Shipping

(Posted on 14/06/24)

ESL Shipping's subsidiary AtoB@C Shipping has on 13th June taken delivery of Ecomar, which is the third vessel in the 12-strong series of 5,350 dwt plug-in hybrid vessels. Ecomar will shortly commence its maiden voyage from India to Europe.

ESL Shipping is the leading carrier of dry bulk cargoes in the Baltic region. ESL. AtoB@C Shipping is an innovative shortsea operator transporting bulk and breakbulk cargoes for industrial clients.

"The first vessel has now been in regular traffic for two months and both our team and clients have been delighted with its performance. We are happy to add Ecomar into our expanding fleet", says Commercial Director Frida Rowland.

Ecomar is specifically designed to transport a variety of bulk and breakbulk products, including steel, forest products, fertilizers, and project cargoes. The ship features a spacious and unobstructed deck, enabling it to accommodate more deck cargo and longer project cargoes compared to the existing vessels in the fleet. To optimize cargo capacity and enhance navigation safety, the crew accommodation and the bridge are situated at the bow, thereby improving visibility during navigation.

AtoB@C Shipping has ordered twelve plug-in hybrid vessels from Chowgule & Company. Electramar was delivered in December 2023 and Stellamar in April 2024.

Shipping’s competitive edge is based on its ability to responsibly secure product and raw material transportation for industries and energy production all year around, even in difficult weather conditions. The shipping company loads and unloads large ocean liners at sea as a special service. ESL Shipping Ltd has been in business for over 70 years and is a subsidiary of Aspo Plc. The combined fleet of ESL Shipping and AtoB@C Shipping consists of over 40 vessels with cargo capacity ranging from 4,000 to 25,000 dwt.
