A2B-online reve­als „oran­ge is the new green“ and enthu­si­a­sti­cal­ly announ­ces the new con­s­truc­tion of two sus­tainable ves­sels of 650 TEU. 

The new ves­sels have been desi­gned with sus­taina­bi­li­ty in mind and will be equip­ped with the latest tech­no­lo­gies to redu­ce CO2 emis­si­ons signi­fi­cant­ly by up to 95%. The ves­sels will have a multi-fuel metha­nol pro­pul­si­on sys­tem, shore power and bat­tery capa­ci­ty to ope­ra­te emis­si­on free during port and inland water operations. 

A2B-online, a pro­vi­der of fle­xi­ble trai­ler, con­tai­ner and ship­ping ser­vices from the Con­ti­nent to the UK, has under­ta­ken the con­s­truc­tion of the two new­builds as it pre­pa­res its fleet for the future. 

The com­pa­ny, which ope­ra­tes seven con­tai­ner ves­sels, is imple­men­ting a fleet revi­ta­li­sa­ti­on pro­gram­me with an eye on the long-term. As it replaces its older ton­na­ge, A2B-online has cho­sen to con­s­truct new ves­sels with a keen focus on sus­tainable performance.

Key fea­ture of the new ves­sels is their opti­mi­zed effi­ci­en­cy. The increased size of the car­go hold rela­ti­ve to A2B-online’s exis­ting ves­sels offers dou­ble capa­ci­ty wit­hout the requi­re­ment to increase the over­all length of the ves­sel significantly.

A2B-online has deve­lo­ped the ves­sels tog­e­ther with Hamburg-based design and engi­nee­ring com­pa­ny Tech­no­log Ser­vices. The com­pa­ny pro­vi­des design, engi­nee­ring and con­sul­tancy ser­vices to its cli­ents and has been invol­ved with this inno­va­ti­ve pro­ject sin­ce the outset.

7Currently under con­s­truc­tion at the lea­ding Sedef Shi­py­ard in Tur­key, the ves­sels are expec­ted to be in ser­vice by the end of 2024, ope­ra­ting bet­ween Moer­di­jk in the Net­her­lands and Imming­ham, UK.

Dinant de Jong, CEO of A2B-online said, “With our new ves­sels we will con­tri­bu­te to a more sus­tainable future and demons­tra­te that it is pos­si­ble to com­bi­ne freight trans­port and envi­ron­men­tal­ly con­scious ope­ra­ti­ons. We want to take this oppor­tu­ni­ty to express our gra­ti­tu­de to all of our cus­to­mers, sup­pli­ers, share­hol­ders and stake­hol­ders for their sup­port and loyal­ty. Wit­hout your trust in us, this achie­ve­ment would not have been possible.”
