Euroseas takes delivery of third eco 2,800 TEU containership

Greek shipowner and operator Euroseas has taken delivery of M/V Tender Soul, the third eco EEDI Phase 3, 2,800 TEU feeder containership from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co. in South Korea. 

As informed, the vessel is equipped with a Tier III engine and other sustainability-linked features including installation of alternative maritime power (AMP).

The shipowner financed the ship via a sale and leaseback agreement with a Japanese owner and bank. Following its delivery, M/V Tender Soul commenced an eight to ten months charter.

“We are very pleased to have taken delivery of M/V Tender Soul, the third vessel from our nine-vessel newbuilding program which includes three additional 2,800 teu and three 1,800 teu units, all modern fuel-efficient eco-design vessels with Tier III engines,” Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas commented

“It should be noted that M/V Tender Soul and the rest of our newbuildings are 40%+ more efficient than previous generation similar size non-eco ships.”

“Thus, we look forward to the delivery of the remaining of our newbuildings that will help us reduce our carbon footprint. At the same time, we expect that the recent recovery in charter rates would benefit our vessels that are to be chartered or re-chartered in the next several months including the next scheduled deliveries from our newbuilding program.”

To remind, the second vessel in this eco series, M/V Terataki, was delivered in August 2023. Ships that comply with EEDI Phase 3 are expected to have a more advanced and efficient design compared to earlier phases, contributing to reduced fuel consumption and emissions during operation.
