Successful first voyages EasyMax vessel ‘Amalia’

After delivery in January the m.v. Amalia - the latest sustainable MPP vessel in the Wagenborg fleet – left her home port Delfzijl for her first voyages. Under command of captain Joenamar S. Bacuetes the first voyages have been completed successfully.

The maiden voyage for the m.v. Amalia exists of a 13.500 tonnes of alumina, which was loaded in Brake for the Norwegian port of Mosjoen. After discharging the Easymax vessel set direction to Herøya for again a full load; this time fertilizers destined for Rotterdam.

Greenest multipurpose vessel in her class

The EasyMax ship concept is the latest and greenest type of ship in the Wagenborg fleet. Wagenborg was awarded the Maritime Shipping Award for this ship design in 2017, partly due to its superior fuel efficiency. With a cargo capacity of 13.800 tonnes and a large hold intake of 625.000 cbft, Wagenborg was able to build a relatively large vessel without a major increase in overall dimensions. With an installed power of less than 3.000 kW and an aerodynamic hull shape, the m.v. Amalia has an extremely low fuel consumption resulting in over 60% savings in CO2- emissions compared to her peer group. This makes the EasyMax the greenest multipurpose vessel in her class, which fits perfectly in the sustainability strategy of Wagenborg.


In 2024 a fourth new build Easymax vessel is expected to be delivered to Wagenborg after which a fifth sister vessel will follow in the next year.
