SEA Consortium-controlled feeder operator X-Press Feeders has ordered sixteen 1,170-TEU dual-fuel newbuild containerships that can operate with standard fuel or green methanol.
The ships will be built by China’s New Dayang Shipbuilding and Ningbo Xinle Shipbuilding Group, with each supplying eight units.
The first of the ships will enter X-Press Feeders’ Europe and Americas trade routes by Q4 2023, with all of them joining the fleet by the end of 2024.
“We are very excited to commission the building of these ships, that will provide cutting edge technology to deliver a balance of environmental sustainability and operational excellence. The X-Press Feeders Group is committed to maintaining an eco-friendly approach to expanding and modernizing our global operated fleet.” said X-Press Feeders CEO Shmuel Yoskovitz.
