On October 29 Wagenborg successfully launched the Easymax 2 at the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard. The new vessel is the successor of the award winning Egbert Wagenborg.
The unique design of the vessel was developed by Royal Wagenborg and Royal Niestern Sander in cooperation with a number of carefully selected partners. The focus with this design was to meet clients’ need for significantly more efficient and reliable transportation.
Greenest multipurpose vessel
With the EasyMax, Wagenborg has a relatively large vessel in terms of cargo intake and hold capacity but without any major increase in overall dimensions or tonnage. In addition, an energy-efficient propulsion system leads to extremely low fuel consumption and saves over 60% in CO2- emissions compared to her peer group. The hull shape has also been optimised for various different draughts, resulting in an ultra-low Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).
The launch of a new vessel is always a special moment. Although no visitors were allowed on the yard, many visitors from over the world witnessed the launch via a spectacular live stream.
