AtoB@C Shipping, a unit of ESL Shipping, has taken delivery of the third 5,350 dwt plug-in hybrid coaster, the Ecomar. It is the third vessel in a series of 12 that the dry bulk specialist will deploy in the coming months. 

Two vessels have already been delivered the first of which Electramar has already started service after its christening in May. Electramar was delivered in December 2023 and Stellamar in April 2024. Ecomar, the new addition to the fleet will shortly commence its maiden voyage from the Chowgule & Company shipyard in India to Europe.

“The first vessel has now been in regular traffic for two months and both our team and clients have been delighted with its performance. We are happy to add Ecomar into our expanding fleet”, says Commercial Director Frida Rowland.

Ecomar is specifically designed to transport a variety of bulk and breakbulk products, including steel, forest products, fertilizers, and project cargoes. The ship features a spacious and unobstructed deck, enabling it to accommodate more deck cargo and longer project cargoes compared to the existing vessels in the fleet. To optimize cargo capacity and enhance navigation safety, the crew accommodation and the bridge are situated at the bow, thereby improving visibility during navigation.

In addition, ESL Shipping is pushing forward with its long-term goal of achieving carbon-neutral operations. The company has recently sold its two Supramax bulk carriers, Arkadia and Kumpula, to a Turkish shipping and logistics group, HGF Denizcilik Limited Sirket for a total of $37.1 million.
