Return to the North
Due to production-friendly construction principles, optimised logistics and increased series effects, the construction of these vessels can be carried out competitively at a variety of shipyards in North Western Europe.
“We are very proud that this ultra-fuel-efficient cargo vessel is developed according to our philosophy to build in series in the North of Europe”, says Maarten Sickler, Director of Conoship International Projects.
The project was initiated by Conoship International Projects (CIP) based on extensive market research Conoship International Projects proactively marketed this vessel, looked for clients, and sourced shipyards. Furthermore, CIP actively brokered between finance houses, owner and shipyard.
“We are delighted with the order,” says Carsten Stellamanns, managing director of Fosen Yard Emden. “The order is intended to become a flagship project and attract other similar projects to the region. Since 2019 we want to re-establish shipbuilding in Germany, at least in certain segments with Fosen Yard Emden GmbH, as a member of the Fosen Group. The yard in Emden is located on an area with over 550.000 m2 and has a long tradition of building various types of vessels. Its 100 employees enable it to build high quality at competitive prices.”
The construction of this first series of 6 cargo vessels is planned for spring 2022, while the entire series is expected to be delivered in 2023.
