Dutch shipping company Royal Wagenborg held a christening ceremony for Egbert Wagenborg, its new multipurpose vessel, on April 21.

“For the third time in 67 years, a vessel in our fleet list has been given the name of the company’s founder, Egbert Wagenborg,” the company said.

The ice-strengthened multipurpose vessel of the EasyMax type has a cargo capacity of over 14,000 tons.

With a length of 149 meters and a width of 15.9 meters, Egbert Wagenborg is the largest vessel ever built by Royal Niestern Sander shipyard, which is situated on the landside of the dikes in the north of the Netherlands.

The newbuilding completed its sea trials earlier this month.

On its first voyage, Wagenborg’s newest ship will sail from Storugns in Sweden to Kokkola in Finland.
