AtoB@C takes delivery of third plug-in hybrid vessel

ESL Shipping subsidiary AtoB@C has taken delivery of Ecomar, the third in a 12-strong series of 5,350 DWT plug-in hybrid vessels.

The general cargo ship will shortly commence its maiden voyage from India to Europe, AtoB@C said in a statement today (14 June).

As previously reported, the first vessel in the series, Electramar, arrived in the Baltic Sea from the Chowgule Shipyard in April.

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

Ecomar is specifically designed to transport a variety of bulk and breakbulk products, including steel, forest products, fertilisers, and project cargoes.

The second vessel in the series, Stellamar, was delivered to AtoB@C Shipping in April.
