Holland Shipyards Group to build two coasters for De Bock Maritiem
Holland Shipyards Group has been contracted by De Bock Maritiem for the construction of two new shortsea vessels. The deal for the two coasters expands Hollands Shipyards Group-s sustainable efforts in the shortsea market.
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 metres and have a cargo hold capacity of 5.100 cubic metres.
The vessels will have 50 percent fewer emissions and the total energy efficiency of the vessels will be 30 percent higher than the international standards (Energy Efficiency Design Index). This is achieved by, among other things, diesel-electric propulsion, optimised 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.
