Royal Niestern Sander launches Wagenborg’s EasyMax 3
The third EasyMax multipurpose vessel (MPP) will soon join the Wagenborg fleet as Royal Niestern Sander Shipyard performed the launching of the vessel.
This new building is the successor of Egbert Wagenborg and its sister vessel Maxima. The EasyMax vessel type is the latest series in Wagenborg’s fleet according to its energy efficiency targets. The launching was streamed live from the shipyard.
With a cargo capacity of more than 14.000 tonnes and a hold capacity of 625.000 cbft, Wagenborg was able to build a relatively large vessel without a major increase in overall dimensions. With an installed power of less than 3.000 kW, this ship has extremely low fuel consumption and due to its design, it has an excellent sea-keeping performance.
Wagenborg’s focus on Energy Efficiency resulted in over 60 per cent savings in CO2- emissions compared to her peer group. According to Wagenborg, the EasyMax is by far the greenest multipurpose vessel in its class, resulting in an undisputed Carbon Intensity Index (CII) A-rating.
In the upcoming weeks, the EasyMax 3 will be commissioned followed by sea trials by the end of this year. The vessel is expected to be delivered to Wagenborg by the end of 2023.
The company has also followed the construction of its third EasyMax through a series of videos.
