Holland Shipyards Group signs contract with De Bock Maritiem for two new shortsea vessels
The 3.600 DWT vessels, designed by Conoship, will transport dry cargo and have a low air draft, making them suitable for inland waterways and the Rhine as well. The vessels will measure 88,00 by 13,20 m and have a cargo hold capacity of 5.100 m³.
The vessels will have 50% fewer emissions and the total energy efficiency of the vessels will be 30% higher than the international standards (Energy Efficiency Design Index). This is achieved by, among other things, diesel-electric propulsion, optimized propeller and hull shape, and very low power.
Following the energy transition, and the sustainability goals of De Bock Maritiem, the vessels have a modular built design. The generators are located in an easily accessible space making the vessel suited for future conversions. The E-room remains unaffected by such a conversion.
