UECC signs newbuilding contract

United European Car Carriers (UECC) has signed a contract for the construction of two new generation pure car and truck carriers (PCTC) with China Ship Building Trading and Jiangnan Shipyard.

The newbuilding contract also has options for two additional vessels. The first vessel is planned for delivery in 2021 and will be equipped with a battery-hybrid LNG power unit. 

This solution, according to UECC, goes beyond the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) target for a 40 percent reduction in carbon intensity by 2030.

“This is a giant leap towards decarbonisation, and unlike anything else that has been done previously in our industry, I believe, and something that we are extremely proud of,” said UECC ceo Glenn Edvardsen.

The vessels will have an overall length of 169 m, a width of 28 m and a car carrying capacity of 3,600 units; it will feature ten cargo decks, including two hoistable decks. According to UECC, this makes the vessels extremely flexible and enables them to accommodate a wide range of high and heavy and breakbulk cargoes.
