UECC's latest hybrid gas-run car carrier has berthed at the Port of Gothenburg, where she received her name and joined the weekly service that links the Swedish seaport with Zeebrugge, Drammen and Esbjerg.
The 169 by 28 m ship can carry up to 3,580 vehicles across ten decks.
Auto Achieve joins her sister ships Auto Advance and Auto Aspire, constructed by Jiangnan Shipyard, christened in Zeebrugge earlier in October.
The company says that the trio exceeds the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) requirement for a 40% reduction in carbon intensity by 2030.
"With new IMO carbon intensity regulations just around the corner and the looming prospect of higher costs for using conventional marine fuel, we are convinced that our timely investments in these newbuilds will make a real difference for the environment and for business. That is called sustainability progress," Glenn Edvardsen, UECC's CEO, commented.
He also underlined, "By putting the environment at the top of its corporate agenda, UECC has taken industry leadership in response to the climate challenge. Growing market demands for green operations and new environmental regulations will radically change the way we do business in future."
