Innovative Sendo Liner vessel named at Damen Concordia

Concordia Damen celebrated the naming of the Sendo Liner, an innovative vessel designed for transporting high cube containers, at its yard last week.

Built for Sendo Shipping the Sendo Liner has been designed for the optimal and efficient transportation of high cube containers between Rotterdam and Groningen, the Netherlands, and other inland terminals.

The ballast system enables the vessel to sit low in the water increasing its air draft when going under bridges and delivers an 8% increase in loading capacity compared similar vessels of the same size.

Sendo Shipping managing director Sebastiaan van der Meer said, “The Sendo Liner’s design is driven by our findings over many years of research and experience. It showcases our long-term strategy and vision for the future and will enable our goals of increased sustainability while increasing operational capabilities considerably.”

The vessel’s diesel-electric propulsion also reduces CO2 emissions per container carried by 40%.

Sendo Shipping has already placed an order for two similar vessels which are under construction at Concordia Damen.
