New design for energy-efficient Conship Coaster

The Fosen shipyard in Emden, Germany has been contracted to build a series of six 88m by 13.2m diesel-electric powered and wind-assisted vessels designed by Conoship International Projects of the Netherlands for an undisclosed operator.

The 3,600dwt general cargo vessels have been specifically developed as energy-efficient, low-air-draught sea and river coasters for trading in northern European waters.

They have also been designed for adaption to future fuels, such as liquid hydrogen and ammonia.

The first vessel is expected to be delivered before the end of this year while the remainder will follow in 2023.
