ESL Shipping, an Aspo Group company, has taken delivery of its LNG-fueled dry cargo vessel named Haaga from the Jinling shipyard in Nanjing, China. 

The 160-meter, 25,600 dwt vessel can also be fueled by biogas once the availability of carbon-free biogas improves over time, the company said in its statement.

The shipping company and MacGregor, which is part of Cargotec, have developed the world’s first autonomous cargo processing solution for the vessel to further improve safety and efficiency.

The vessel will have raw material cargo while arriving from Japan to the Baltic Sea, where the vessel is currently scheduled to arrive in this month.

This new construction project is part of the Bothnia Bulk project, partly funded by the EU. Its goal is to modernize the sea route between Luleå, Oxelösund and Raahe.

The vessels have been designed by Deltamarin in Finland, and European equipment suppliers have provided roughly 60 percent of all vessel systems.
