AtoB@C Shipping has taken delivery of Stellamar, the second in the series of twelve plug-in hybrid general cargo vessels. Stellamar is a state-of-the-art vessel that can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 50% compared to the present generation of vessels, thanks to its shore power connectivity and large battery installation. It also offers a quieter and cleaner operation while in port.

"We have listened to our customers and developed vessels that suit their needs and expectations. Our customers value our reliability, quality and environmental performance, and we are happy to offer them these next-generation electric hybrid vessels that will enhance our service offering and competitiveness", says Commercial Director Frida Rowland.

Stellamar is designed to carry a wide range of bulk and breakbulk products, such as steel, forest products, fertilizers and project cargoes. The vessel has a long unobstructed deck, which allows loading more deck cargo and longer project cargoes than the current vessels in the fleet. The crew accommodation and the bridge are located at the bow, which optimises the cargo capacity and improves the visibility and safety of navigation.

Stellamar is the first vessel to be sold to the company formed by private and institutional investors once it arrives in Europe. All vessels of the series will be operated by AtoB@C Shipping in the Green Coaster Pool.
