New cargo vessel launched at Thecla Bodewes Shipyards

At the end of November 2023 Thecla Bodewes Shipyards successfully launched the 7,280dwt vessel Vertom Anne Marit for the Vertom Group.

The launch ceremony was held at Thecla Bodewes Shipyards in Kampen. Vertom Anne Marit is the fourth vessel in a series of ten vessels and represents a significant addition to Vertom Group’s fleet.

Built by Thecla Bodewes Shipyards, the new vessel features a diesel-electric propulsion system, and state-of-the-art technology, ensuring efficient fuel consumption.

Vertom Anne Marit, part of the Labrax series, was designed by Groot Ship Design and TBSY. The Labrax series marks an important milestone in the development of sustainable shipping solutions and is therefore fully in line with the aims of both the Vertom Group and Thecla Bodewes Shipyards to make a substantial contribution to the transition to an emission-free shipping industry.

The diesel-electric propulsion system, in combination with the advanced power-management system, minimizes energy losses, reduces overall fuel consumption and reduces CO2 emissions.

In addition, the installed propulsion power is considerably lower compared to ships of equal cargo capacity and with conventional propulsion.

With a length of 118.6m, a beam of 14.3m and a full-box cargo hold of 329,700 cu ft, the Labrax 7280dwt series offers competitive transport solutions.
