AtoB@C Shipping Welcomes First Plug-In Hybrid Newbuild In Sweden


AtoB@C Shipping, a Swedish subsidiary of Finland-based shipping company ESL Shipping, said that its first plug-in hybrid newbuilding Electramar reached the Baltic Sea, marking the end of a long voyage from India around the Cape of Good Hope to Europe.

After discharging in Luleå, the vessel will enter AtoB@C Shipping’s contract traffic in the Baltic Sea and Northern Europe.


Electramar is the first vessel in the series of twelve highly energy-efficient plug-in hybrid vessels. These vessels reduce CO2 emissions by up to 50% compared to the present generation of vessels.

Shore power connectivity and a large battery installation are said to provide advanced fuel efficiency and the possibility to minimize noise and emissions while in port.
