French Shipping Company Selects Shipyard for Sail-Powered Cargo Ship

By Mike Schuler

SNIPPET:

he LOI with Neopolia Mobility covers the construction of the first vessel, a 136-meter-long sailing cargo ship capacity of 500 cars and 280 containers. Commissioning is planned for the first half of 2024 with construction beginning as early as this summer, subject to obtaining the needed financing.

Earlier this year, tire manufacturer Michelin agreed to ship a portion of its tires using Neoline’s vessels. Under the agreement, tires will be loaded in containers and shipped from Michelin’s facilities in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Saint-Nazaire, France as soon as the Neoline’s first ship enters service.

With 4,200 square meters of sail area and engine assist, Neoline believes the vessels can achieve a speed of at least 11 knots to keep a biweekly service schedule while also achieving verified bunker fuel savings.
