Wagenborg Orders Second EasyMax Handysize
Dutch shipowner and operator Wagenborg has ordered a second EasyMax type carrier from compatriot builder Royal Niestern Sander.
The new vessel is scheduled to start construction soon, according to an announcement from Royal Niestern Sander.
The open-top, ice-classed vessel will be a future sister ship to the Egbert Wagenborg, which started operations in 2017.
Developed by Wagenborg and Niestern Sander, the 149-meter-long EasyMax concept is a Handysize multi-purpose vessel with a load capacity of 14,000 tons and a hold capacity of 625,000 cft.
Egbert Wagenborg is also the largest vessel ever built by Royal Niestern Sander shipyard.
Thanks to its low resistance due to optimal hull shape, the vessel consumes 9 tonnes of fuel a day at 11 knots, according to Wagenborg.
