Eastaway, a member of the X-Press Feeders Group, has commissioned 8 state-of-the-art 1,170 TEU container ships, with options for more. The first vessels will be delivered for service in Q4 2023, with all ships to be operational by End 2024.

The new container ships, which have been designed with naval architects TECHNOLOG Servies GmbH, will be outfitted with ultramodern, dual-fuel engines. They can operate on regular fuel or green methanol, and are specifically designed to be highly fuel-efficient. The vessels will align with the X-Press Feeders’ Group practices of environmental stewardship to achieve carbon-neutral shipping by 2050 and will help the X-Press Feeders Group to move closer to the target of operating their first ‘zero-emission ready’ vessel by 2025.

“At Eastaway, we are extremely proud to welcome these state-of-the-art ships to our fleet. Not only will they contribute to our long-term fleet expansion, but their dual-fuel engines will help us achieve our sustainability goals. Ensuring greener shipping in the future.”

– Captain R.S. Minhas, Eastaway Managing Director

Eastaway looks forward to welcoming the new vessels in 2023!
