AAC delivers new methanol containerships

Arkona Allied Container (AAC), a Germany-based chartering joint venture, has confirmed the initiation of 10 firm container vessels of the new ‘Enviro Feeder’ design.

The new Eniviro Feeder design vessels have low bunker consumption and they will be fitted for 45-foot shipping containers.

In addition, the methanol-ready ships are designed to use shore power and CO2 capture technologies in the near future, reported AAC.

The Eniviro Feeder project has been developed in close co-operation with owners, charterers, Dutch firm SMB Naval Architect and Norwegian classification society DNV.

The vessels were recently ordered by shipowners HS Schiffahrt, H.P. Wegener, Reederei Jüngerhans, Reederei Wessels and Visser Shipping at two shipyards; Jiangsu Dajin Shipyard and Qingdao Yangfan.

The vessels will be delivered throughout 2025 and 2026.

In October 2023, Unifeeder Group signed a long-term time-charter arrangement for two new methanol-capable container feeder vessels, with an option for two more.

More recently, A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) and Chinese developer Goldwind marked the first large scale green methanol offtake agreement for the global shipping industry.
