India’s Chowgule Shipyard has launched the first of twelve energy-efficient plug-in hybrid vessels ordered by AtoB@C Shipping, a subsidiary of Finnish dry bulk shipping company ESL Shipping. The vessel, named Electramar, is part of a series of ships aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enabling emission-free and noise-free port calls. The vessels will feature battery packs, shoreside electricity solutions, and electric hybrid technology. The order, which was placed in 2021 and expanded in 2022, will see the delivery of one vessel every three months, with the final delivery expected in the second quarter of 2026. These 1A ice class vessels will have a loading capacity of 5,350 dwt, and significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to existing ships. ESL Shipping plans to establish a long-term pool for these eco-friendly vessels in collaboration with a group of investors.
