Wagenborg’s third EasyMax multipurpose vessel, Amalia, has already completed its first cargo delivery after it departed its home port Delfzijl in January. The vessel transported 13,500 tons of alumina, which was loaded in Brake for the Norwegian port of Mosjoen. 

After discharging, the multipurpose vessel set direction to Herøya for again a full load; this time fertilizers destined for Rotterdam.

Wagenmborg noted that the EasyMax multipurpose ship concept is the latest and greenest type of ship in its fleet. Wagenborg was awarded the Maritime Shipping Award for this ship design in 2017, partly due to its superior fuel efficiency. With a cargo capacity of 13.800 tonnes and a large hold intake 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 and an aerodynamic hull shape, the MV Amalia has an extremely low fuel consumption resulting in over 60 per cent savings in CO2 emissions compared to its peer group. This makes EasyMax the greenest multipurpose vessel in the class, which fits perfectly in the sustainability strategy of Wagenborg.

In 2024 a fourth new build Easymax vessel is expected to be delivered to Wagenborg after which a fifth sister vessel will follow in the next year.
