MV Symphony Atlantic launched at Scheepswerf Ferus Smit in Leer (DE) 19/11/2022

MV Symphony Atlantic launched at Scheepswerf Ferus Smit in Leer (DE)

Symphony Atlantic is the first in a series of two Ecobox XL vessels, which are an evolution of the successful Ecobox and Ecobox DP series that the yard has delivered to Symphony in recent years.

According to the shipyard, the new Ecobox XL design is developed with a focus on loading extra-long items, such as windmill blades, while at the same time still maintaining her good capabilities as a general cargo ship. The modifications in design and systems are also aimed to further enhance her excellent ‘green’ performance with a reduction of her EEDI-score to a new class reference standard.

Therefore the original Ecobox design is lengthened by more than 21 mtr, extending her box shaped hold to more than 100 mtr length on the tanktop, and 112 mtr above the movable tweendeck level. The new ships are 18 mtrs wide, enhancing her cargo deadweight further, and maintaining here flexibility of loading while keeping a very low resistance on both flat water and in waves.

- Maximum loading capacity abt. 12.500 DWT
- Large floor space for project cargoes, including complete movable tween deck, cargo length 100 mtr on tanktop and 112 mtr on tweendecks
- Two 85 tons cargo cranes
- Open top notation
- Iceclass 1A
